RELIANCE - A Documentary Film
RELIANCE is a three-year documentary project about Matthew Zarrella, a search specialist who transforms pound dogs into Search & Rescue K9s.
RELIANCE brings the audience alongside Zarrella and his K9 teams and reveals the gripping world of missing person searches. In many cases, the use of dogs in searches may mean life or death for a missing victim, or the ability to help provide answers or closure for decades-old tragedies. In RELIANCE, you will meet these human-dog teams and get to know them intimately.
