White Dog

White Dog

A film by Samuel Fuller

USA, 1982, 90'

Julie Sawyer, a young actress, finds an injured white dog on the road and decides to adopt him. However, the animal's unpredictable behaviour soon reveals that it was trained to attack black people. Keys, a black animal keeper, convinces Julie not to put it down and to let him try the impossible, to reeducate the animal. Adapted from a novel by Romain Gray, “White Dog” was initially offered to Roman Polansky but ended up in the hands of veteran Fuller who, instead of the “Jaws on Paws” the producers wanted, turned a simple metaphor into a blunt attack on racism in the USA, focusing on the following question: can racism be cured? The soundtrack was in charge of the recently deceased Ennio Morricone.
