White God: First Look - Undead Monday

Posted by The Daily Zombies Monday, December 8, 2014

Every dog has its day.  In White God (Fehér isten in Hungarian), the Unwanted will have their day. The canine revolution will be televised in this most unique Hungarian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 87th Academy Awards. We take a First Look at the film with the release of its first trailer. 

This Undead Monday, we take a look at a potential new apocalypse of mankind as we know it: The canine revolution. Yes, we have witnessed the ape-pocalypse thanks to the Planet of the Apes film franchise but ever consider a "Rise of the Dogs" given how man's best friends are often given the short end of the stick of goodness by humans?

In White God (Fehér isten in Hungarian), the Hungarian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 87th Academy Awards, we have a truly unique film with more than a few real messages with the brain behind the film, Hungarian film-maker, actor, and screenwriter Kornél Mundruczó using the revolution as a metaphor for the current political unrest in Europe. 

Nevertheless, we are more than certain that the film is going to strike more than a chord with dog lovers. While we here at The Daily Zombies aren't exactly hardcore animal rights enthusiasts, we are floored by the very impactful trailer. Brace yourself for the canine uprising right below.

Here's the official synopsis for the film:

Winner of Cannes Film Festival's Prize Un Certain Regard Award and official selection of Sundance Film Festival, White God premieres in theatres March 27th, 2015.

Kornel Mundruczo’s newest film is a story of the indignities visited upon animals by their supposed “human superiors,” but it’s also an 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 it’s 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 …

Directed by Kornél Mundruczó, who also co-wrote the film with Viktória Petrányi and Kata Wéber, White God stars Zsofia Psotta, Sandor Zsoter, Szabolcs Thuroczy, Lili Monori, Laszlo Galffi and Lili Horvath star.  Courtesy of Magnolia, the film will have a limited release in North America on March 27th, 2015.
