About the film:
“WOOF: a barkumentary” is a short documentary produced and directed by Joseph Darius Jaafari ( reporter with outlets such as VICE, Rolling Stone and The Atlantic). The story focuses around the fetish “pup play” — where gay men dress and assume the role of dogs — and look at who the people are that take part in the fetish, how surrogate families play an important role within the LGBTQ fetish world, and how those who are new into the fetish world can enter into an abusive relationship, if not careful.

“This is a world that many don’t get a chance to see. Oftentimes, whenever we see fetishes in media, it’s in jest and pointing fingers at those who are different than you or I,” said Jaafari, who started working on the film independently while also working at VICE. “I wanted to tell a story about the people behind the leather, and I think we accomplished that.”

Advance screenings for "WOOF: a barkumentary" are already scheduled in New York, Baltimore, Washington D.C., New Orleans and Los Angeles with more dates to come in Toronto, San Francisco, and Phoenix.

Screenings for the film are being held in gay fetish and leather bars in conjunction or sponsored by local pup groups, so audience members — gay and straight — who have never been part of the scene can meet pups in person and get an insight into a world that many don’t get a chance to see.

Run time: 29 minutes
