'White God' wins 'Un Certain Regard' prize at Cannes
'White God,' a film about a mixed-breed dog who must learn how to survive after a society declares mutts undesirable, wins at the Cannes Film Festival
"White God," a film about a mixed-breed dog who must learn how to survive after a society declares mutts undesirable, won the "Un Certain Regard" prize at the Cannes Film Festival on Friday.
Its director, Kornel Mundruczo of Hungary, has said it is an allegory about Europeans' treatment of minorities.
"Turist," by director Ruben Ostlund, won the jury prize, and a special prize was given to Wim Wenders and Juliano Ribeiro Salgado's "Salt of the Earth."
"Party Girl" got an ensemble prize while David Gulpilil was awarded best actor for Rolf de Heer's "Charlie's Country."
The competition honors more offbeat films than those up for the Palme d'Or.
It was the second win of the day for "White God" - its four-legged stars were awarded the quirky Palm Dog.
