Introduction:

The series  “- / Philia” deals with a relationship between a pet and its owner.

Each video is taken by a pet owner and later dubbed with words based on their interpretation.

You could say that pet owners are unreliable translators, giving unilateral love towards their pets. But to some extent there is a trust in their translations created by the intimate relationship between them.
