Movie Info

"Who Let the Dogs Out" is a song that has transcended generations, and has led Ben Sisto to dedicate eight years exploring and exposing a story steeped in show business, legal battles, female empowerment, artistic integrity and one very catchy hook. This documentary follows Sisto on his popular live talks across the world that explain the story of "Who Let The Dogs Out" accompanied by a museum of over 250 pieces of ephemera relating to the song and its origins. Sisto's thesis to his life's work: the idea that everything is based on prior art, and everything is source material for future art. It's from this mantra that the dogs were let out...and we are here to explore who did it.

  • The most important film of our lifetime,...as fundamental as the first cry of a child entering this world, a clarion call that declares we are here, we are alive, we want to know where the dogs went and just who was responsible for their escape.

  • The best documentary takes our misconceptions and shows us the truth. Who Let the Dogs Out does this by taking a pop song and delivering a treatise on the very nature of art.
