A Dog's Change

Oliver Whitehead

An experimental documentary about an overtly friendly guard and pet dog that appears to have some of the characteristics of wildness associated with animals in Africa. The dog is kept confined to a garden courtyard of a house surrounded by a wall. The only entrance is constantly guarded by a servant that never allows it to venture freely beyond the confines of the yard.
