The Whole Dam Family and the Dam Dog
First screened in March 2007 / Most recently screened in June 2014
Director: Edwin S. Porter. Silent five-minute short. Twitter Capsule:
Initial cameos establish stiff bourgeois "types." Animal chaos breaks formal and bourgeois order.
Witty combination, typically Porter, of artful typology and filmed actuality. A dog pulling a tablecloth feels like a short story.
