Greyhound racing makes an impression. Not only for the speed of the dogs, but for the recklessness of humans towards animals. With a profound narrative voice and precise images, Olivia Calcaterra manages to capture the tension between the people who train dogs to race and then abandon them, and the people who rescue them.
