Documentary about a former Yugoslavian (?) soldier who cared for homeless dogs?

Documentary about a former Yugoslavian (?) soldier who cared for homeless dogs? The film was about a soldier (youngish, long dark hair) who served in the war in Yugoslavia -- my memory is that he was Serbian, but I am not sure. After the war, he went back to his city but his home and all of his family/friends were gone. He began to take care of all the homeless dogs around him and would travel by foot to care for more. He eventually built a compound where they lived together. [more inside]

Creating an internship for a small-budget documentary

I'm making a documentary in 40 cities in 10 months. We're travelling a lot, and need certain jobs done in many disciplines while we're away, which will be a large drag on our time. We would like to employ someone to help, but have no funds, other than to offer a slice of the end profits should the project become successful. So, an internship? A volunteer? How can I create one that's useful to the intern? [more inside]

Mocking School Lunch in the Movies

When was the first time "school lunch" was ridiculed in a movie (most likely a teen flick) or a TV show? We're currently producing a documentary on school lunch, and we know that there was a cultural shift in how school lunch was perceived (great social achievement to grotesque laughingstock). If you can help us identify the first instance of this shift in popular culture, we'll give you a film credit.

What films are about people who decide to live on the road?

Besides Lost in America, Easy Rider, Surfwise, and Into the Wild, what other films are about people who make an affirmative decision to live on the road?

What is this documentary called?

I'm trying to track down a documentary I saw online years ago. Details are sketchy, but I remember either 8x8 or 16x16 pixel art animation - enlarged. I think they talked about Edison electrocuting an elephant, and many design and art related topics. Two people were narrating and I believe they worked for some kind of design firm.
