White God Film About Mixed Breed Tax Based On Real Legislation
In an interview with the White God director at moveablefest.com, Kornel Mundruczo explains that the legislation that would tax owners of mixed-breed dogs more than pure breed dogs was actually floated as a real law. “I read this proposal for the first time, and it’s surrealistic,” says Mundruczo. “How you can separate for races and the breeds? It’s so sick.” Fortunately, the measure didn’t pass, but it did inspire him to make the movie.
But this movie is more than just about the law, it’s a sweet story about a girl and her dog. She gets dropped off with her father who obviously doesn’t care for her dog. Soon enough, he leaves the dog out on the streets to fend for itself which leaves them both broken hearted. However, Hagen the dog doesn’t take it lying down. He starts a canine revolution to find his human friend and it is just as sweet and tear-jerking as it sounds. Take a peek at the trailer and I dare you not to reach for a tissue before it’s over.
