White God (2014)

Drama, Fantasy, Horror 2h 1m 2014

“A film that no serious movie-lover should miss.” – Nick Roddick, London Evening Standard

“A fierce and beautiful parable.” - Manohla Dargis,The New York Times

Official Sundance selection, Winner of the International Golden Orange Viewer’s Award and the Prize of Un Certain Regard of the Cannes Film Festival, this fairy tale-esque Hungarian film is both a beautiful story of a girl and her dog as well as a metaphor of the political unrest in modern Europe.

13-year-old Lili (Zsófia Psotta) and her dog Hagen are best friends and Lili is heartbroken when her father chooses to abandon Hagen instead of paying a government imposed tax on the dog. When Lili sets out to find her beloved former pet she encounters many startling obstacles. Hagen is equally as determined to find her, fleeing dogcatchers and ultimately being sent to a pound. While in captivity he and the other imprisoned dogs form an army and seize a chance to escape then rise up against mankind, with only Lili standing in the middle between oppressors and the oppressed.

Director Kornel Mundruczo worked with 250 stray mixed breed dogs for over a year to achieve a film that uses no CGI, to give every moment an authentic feel.
