Exclusive Clip From Cannes Selection WHITE GOD Releases The Hounds

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Selected as part of the Un Certain Regard program in Cannes, Hungarian writer-director Kornel Mundruczo's White God (Feher Isten) tells the story of a girl and her dog. And a potential inter species war.

A cautionary tale between a superior species and its disgraced inferior... Favoring pedigree dogs, a new regulation puts a severe tax on mixed breeds. Owners dump their dogs and shelters become overcrowded. 13-year-old Lili fights desperately to protect her pet Hagen, but her father eventually sets the dog free on the streets. Hagen and his pretty master search desperately for each other until Lili loses faith. Struggling to survive, homeless Hagen realizes that not everyone is a dog's best friend. Hagen joins a gang of stray dogs, but is soon captured and sent to the pound. With little hope inside there, the dogs will seize an opportunity to escape and revolt against mankind. Their revenge will be merciless. Lili may be the only one who can halt this unexpected war between man and dog.
This promises to be stark and beautiful stuff and certainly worlds away from what you'd get with similarly themed Hollywood fare. Want a taste to see what I mean? Twitch is proud to present an exclusive clip from the Cannes selection. Check it out below.

    Interesting. While I doubt it is, because the English title isn't the original title, my initial reaction is that "White God" might be a play on Fuller's "White Dog".

  • remind me of the great opening of "Waltz with Bashir"
