For our Dablon movie lovers and cinephiles we are providing world class foreign and independent films in the Tasting Room. At no charge to our wine loving friends, we are bringing Music Box Films’ catalog of over 100 award winning titles to our new 12’ x 7’ screen along with a JBL sound system. Wine will be served by the glass or bottle (no tastings during the film) and we hope to provide time for discussion after the screening.
About Quill: The Life of a Guide Dog
The documentary-like story of a yellow Labrador Retriever guide dog for the blind named Quill. We follow Quill from the litter, his selection to become a guide, his life with a foster family until his first birthday, followed by highly specialized schooling in guiding the sightless. He is then paired with a blind man named Watanabe Mitsuru who is at first reluctant to rely on Quill. But Quill’s great patience, gentleness and skill eventually wins him over and they become inseparable friends.
Starring: Kaoru Kobayashi, Kippei Shiina, Teruyuki Kagawa
Director: Yôichi Sai
