In which the dogs fight back

White God, a Hungarian drama about a canine revolt against their human abusers, will be screened at Thailand Knowledge Park (TK Park) on the 8th floor of CentralWorld, Ratchadamri Road, this Saturday at 4pm.

Directed by Kornel Mundruczo, the two-hour movie, set in Budapest, is a strong and inspiring tale of the love between 13-year-old Lili and her half-breed mongrel dog, Hagen.

She brings him in when she comes to live with her estranged father. But her father refuses to keep him at home and abandons him on the streets. Lili is heartbroken but can’t find him.

The law is against the dog for being a half-breed mongrel. Hagen is caught and sold to a dog fighter who teaches him how to fight and kill. After that he becomes a killer dog and soon gangs up with 250 dogs in the city to wreak revenge on the humans who had treated them badly.

The movie has moved audiences around the world. It asks many questions, especially about inequality, not just between humans and animals but between men of different races and social classes.

It won the Prize Un Certain Regard at the 2014 Cannes Festival, where Hagen, the dog, also won an unprecedented Palm Dog Award. The film was screened at various festivals around the world and was Hungary’s entry for the Oscars in 2014.

The Bangkok screening is presented as part of TKP’s Contemporary World Film Series with support from the Embassy of Hungary. The movie has both English and Thai subtitles. Entry fee is 20 baht (free for members). Seats are limited.
