When young Lili is forced to give up her beloved dog Hagen because its mixed-breed heritage is deemed “unfit” by the State, she and the dog begin a dangerous journey back towards each other. At the same time, all the unwanted and so-called “unfit” dogs rise up under a new leader, Hagen, who has learned all too well from his “Masters” in his journey through the streets and animal control centers of Budapest that man is not always dog’s best friend.

In Hungarian with English subtitles.




All screenings are free and open the public. Co-sponsored by the Center for Slavic, Eurasian, and East European Studies; Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures; and Global Cinema Studies at UNC. The series is made possible in part by the Democratization Processes in Eastern Europe and Beyond Fund. Please direct all inquiries to the main organizer Leah Valtin-Erwin (
