Approaching a community filled with so many rumors and misconceptions is no easy task. Director, Dominic Rodriguez, is not without his own biases, but instead of attempting to deny this fact, he faces it head on, unafraid to be shot down by his subjects. Fursonas is a whistleblower film that oscillates between the fantastic and the unusual, with moments of awe and wonder slapped against harsh reality. The audience can delight in infiltrating the fun, and sometimes-dark secrets, of an escapist group. Whether or not you’ve heard of the furry fandom, this documentary transcends its bizarre premise to tell a universal story of identity and community.
