1h 33m Documentary 2021

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. 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.

A work of genius’ - Luke Buckmaster, The Guardian

What’s so remarkable about Gunda is not only how beautifully Kossakovsky renders these humble surroundings, but how much drama he manages to excavate from the daily toing and froing of farmyard life.’ - Clarisse Loughrey, The Independent
