GUINEA PIG DIARIES shows us firsthand the special bond between humans and their pet guinea pigs, revealing stories much more compelling than we could have ever imagined. Our relationship with this small furry animal has been part of the “domesticated pet” culture for centuries. But it is through this unique film that audiences get a rare and unfiltered look into the lives of this often misunderstood rodent and the interesting people who adore them, breed them, show them, and rescue them. Through each of these personal stories we reveal that it is in fact the guinea pigs who often liberate and heal the souls of the very people who believed their purpose was to care for these small and wondrous creatures.
Co-Director Olympia Stone directed CURIOUS WORLDS: THE ART AND IMAGINATION OF DAVID BECK (SFF 2016) and ACTUALLY, ICONIC: RICHARD ESTES (SFF 2020).
