Experiential cinema in its purest form, Gunda chronicles the unfiltered lives of a mother pig, a flock of chickens, and a herd of cows with masterful intimacy.
Using stark, transcendent 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, taking in their world with a magical patience and an other worldly perspective.
Gunda asks us to meditate on the mystery of animal consciousness, and reckon with the role humanity plays in it.
Director: Victor Kosakovskiy

"mesmerising...as it unfurls its immersive audiovisual tapestry it hovers between non-fiction observation and lyrical insight, and to that end feels like an advancement of the nature documentary form" - INDIEWIRE
"you don't have to be an animal lover to appreciate the craft and the genuine poetic vision of a film which, though strictly unsentimental, is intensely moving, transfixing and quite genuinely unique" - SCREEN INTERNATIONAL
"A landmark film from a bracingly original filmmaker." - HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
"captivating...simple but entirely astonishing" - VARIETY
