WHITE GOD took home the Un Certain Regard prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, meaning it was the best movie with an innovative and strange approach. After watching the trailer, we can definitely confirm that it looks strange.

In a country where mixed-breed dogs are restricted, a girl’s father abandons her pet and leaves it to be picked up by animal control. The imprisoned dogs then organize into a small army and break out on a search for freedom. Yes, it sounds like Homeward Bound meets Planet Of The Apes. No, it doesn’t actually seem to play that way. It looks dark and allegorical.

If you like what you see, you’ll have to wait until March 27th for it to be released.
