Hande Noyan (Cinemaniacs, author of soon to be released book on Turkish rip-off cinema) introduces Samuel Fuller’s incredible masterpiece WHITE DOG.
Samuel Fuller’s throat-grabbing exposé on American racism was misunderstood and withheld from release when it was made in the early eighties; today, the notorious film is lauded for its daring metaphor and gripping pulp filmmaking. Kristy McNichol stars as a young actress who adopts a lost German shepherd, only to discover through a series of horrifying incidents that the dog has been trained to attack black people, and Paul Winfield plays the animal trainer who tries to cure him. A snarling, uncompromising vision, WHIT DOG is a tragic portrait of the evil done by that most corruptible of animals: the human being.
