EXCLUSIVE: Hungary’s Cannes award-winning Oscar entry White God is bounding toward Sundance, where the brutal drama about a 13-year-old girl and her loyal pup-turned-leader of the canine revolution will make its U.S. debut.
The Un Certain Regard winner has earned raves for Kornél Mundruczó’s direction and its metaphorical undertones of political and cultural unrest and opens stateside via Magnolia Pictures on March 27. Homeward Bound this ain’t. Zsofia Psotta makes her acting debut leading a cast that includes Sandor Zsoter, Szabolcs Thuroczy, Lili Monori, Laszlo Galffi, Lili Horvath, and an army of pooches.
Above, check out a peek at the dog uprising tearing through the streets in Deadline’s exclusive clip for White God, which premieres in Park City Sunday night with Mundruczó and his four-legged star Bodie in attendance.
