In today’s episode, I review a Hungarian film called White God by director Kornél Mundruczó. The film won the Un Certain Regard award at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, and the main canine actor received their prestigious Palm Dog Award. This film is at once a revenge film, a science fiction film, a horror film, a political film, a coming of age film, and a film steeped in stark realism. But most importantly, for me, for you, and for the animals, it is an animal rights film. Take a listen, and be sure to watch the film. NO ANIMALS WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS PODCAST.
