Guiness the dog
DocumentaryFamily & Teen
A sweet tale of an animal named ‘Guiness’ – the titular ‘useless dog’ – who is subject to farmer Trevor Wardrop’s complaints in this documentary short. Wardrop’s narrative proceeds over images of what he claims are Guiness’s cowardly, narcoleptic characteristics. Directed by Ken Wardrop, Useless Dog shifts between sentimentality and dark comedy as it portrays an accursed animal who, for all his faults, is entirely part of the family.
