Faye Rogers claims to have a unique ability — to converse with animals. In this quirky short documentary Rogers shares her talent and introduces some of her favourite animals, including her donkey Thistle, who has a penchant for swearing and watching crime shows. It’s not just her own pets she can talk to either: while filming she takes a Skype call from an American client whose kitten Finn has gone missing. It's up to Faye to convince Finn to come out of hiding. The film was made as part of the 2015 series of Loading Docs, a collection of short films made for viewing online.
Probably the thing that I learnt as a child is that you do get bombarded with a lot of information from the animals. It just comes in all the time. You go outside, the birds are talking to you. You sit on the grass, the worms are talking to you.– Faye Rogers
