"Winston Gets a Wheelchair"
"Drag King": a short film
Every summer, proud dog owners bring their canine companions to Petaluma, California, to compete for a highly coveted title. No, this isn t your standard Best in Show championship, this is the contest for the World s Ugliest Dog. For more than 20 years, the grassroots contest has gained worldwide media attention and has given rise to a new class of competitors. 2008 was a particularly competitive year: vying for the top spot was Rascal (the veteran), Icky (the Rookie), and Pabst (the underdog).
Worst in Show is a fascinating documentary that examines the many ways our society defines beauty and takes viewers behind the scenes at an event where the competitors never fail to impress. Equally impressive, however, is the care and devotion of their human counterparts, all of whom prove that love goes beyond skin deep.
