It was the Hungarian filmmaker’s fifth feature, 2008’s Delta, which won the FIPRESCI award at Cannes that really started our interest in the filmmaker. While his 2010 followup, Tender Son: The Frankenstein Project never received a US release date, we’re happy to see that he’s got another title finished and set for release this year. Mundruczo stated that he wanted to make an auteur film that reaches a broader audience, which is perhaps why this title may not premiere at a film festival.

Gist: A sentimental adventure film, when 12-year-old Lili’s father takes her pet dog away from her, the girl runs away from home in search of her dog.

Release Date: Scheduled for release in March, 2014, we’re hoping to see this get some festival play after its Hungarian premiere.
