Ollie tells the story of the daily life of a dog at the beginning of the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. The dog realizes that his human has stopped leaving the house for work in the morning. He feels extremely happy that his human stays in the house almost all day, every day with him. But one day, the human becomes very sick with COVID-19 and suddenly is taken to the hospital. The dog stays alone for many days without knowing when his human will return.
Sadiel Gómez is a Cuban-born filmmaker based in Toronto, Canada. He began studying video production at the University of Matanzas, resulting in several national award nominations for short films and music videos. Sadiel also established himself as a highly successful electronic music producer, releasing albums through two artistic collaborations (Purple Jack, House Republic) on digital platforms accessed globally. His musical background greatly informs his film compositions, but he also attributes his visual creativity to over 15 years’ experience as a Divemaster and underwater photographer. Now in Canada, he is a full-time student at George Brown College and set to graduate in spring 2023. Sadiel has produced five short films— each focused on different dimensions of life in Toronto. His dream is to direct a feature film that accomplishes the same intensity and musicality as his short films.
