A cautionary tale about the supposed mankind’s “superiority” over “lesser beasts” comes to perspective in the 2014 Hungarian drama White God.

WhiteGod-2015-1A new set of Hungarian laws favor pedigree and purebred dogs, placing severe tax on those who own mixed breeds. These laws have real consequences, especially for 13-year-old Lili (Zsófia Psotta). Already a pawn from her parent’s bitter divorce, she can’t understand why her dog, Hagen, is less important than other dogs. When her enraged father leaves Hagen in the streets, heartbroken Lili sets out to find him. Meanwhile, Hagen is captured and sent to the pound where he seizes an opportunity to escape and rebel against the human race, along with all the other unwanted, unloved and so-called “unfit” dogs who rally to his side!

Directed by Kornél Mundruczó (Tender Son: The Frankenstein Project), the film was a critical favorite in the U.S. earlier this year and won the Un Certain Regard Award at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.

Holding a new world record for the staggering amount of dogs used during filming, White God is Hungary’s official submission for the 2015 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

The White God DVD and Blu-ray contain the following features:

  • Behind The Scenes Of White God
  • Interview With Writer/Director Kornél Mundruczó
  • ​ Interview With Animal Coordinator/Technical Advisor Teresa Ann Miller
