This upcoming movie will definitely get your hearts crying. The movie White God revolves around a doggie revolt, the most adorable revolution you will ever see – probably the most moving, too!
This foreign film, directed by Kornél Mundruczó, is more than a mere feel-good parable. Mundruczó uses the army of dogs as a metaphor for current political conflict in Europe. Here’s the official synopsis:
“Winner of the Prize Un Certain Regard Award at this year’s Cannes Festival, KornelMundruczo’s newest film is a story of the indignities visited upon animals by their supposed “human superiors,” but it’s also a brutal, beautiful metaphor for the political and cultural tensions sweeping contemporary Europe. When young Lili is forced to give up her beloved dog Hagen, because its mixed-breed heritage is deemed ‘unfit’ by The State, she and the dog begin a dangerous journey back towards each other. At the same time, all the unwanted, unloved and so-called ‘unfit’ dogs rise up under a new leader, Hagen, the one-time housepet who has learned all too well from his ‘Masters’ in his journey through the streets and animal control centers how to bite the hands that beats him.”
