Cinema in its purest form, GUNDA chronicles the lives of a mother pig, a flock of chickens, and a herd of cows with masterful intimacy.
“Gunda personalizes these animals without humanizing them, and evacuates explicit humanity without ignoring its clear impact.” - Rolling Stone ★★★★
Using beautiful black and white cinematography and the farm's ambient soundtrack, master director Victor Kossakowsky invites the audience to slow down and experience life as his subjects do. In doing so GUNDA takes us into the mystery of animal consciousness, and the role humanity plays in it.
“Sublimely beautiful and profoundly moving, it offers you the opportunity to look - at animals, yes, but also at qualities that are often subordinated in narratively driven movies, at textures, shapes and light.”- New York Times
