Gunda

Documentary

Norway | 2020

Directed by Victor Kossakovsky

"Few films capture the intense, sticky bond between a mother and her offspring so simply and wrenchingly, without remark, or convey the knowledge that we carnivores are devouring souls with every bite of bacon." AARP Movies for Grownups

Where his prior film, the acclaimed epic Aquarela, was a reminder of the fragility of human tenure on earth, in Gunda, master filmmaker Viktor Kossakovsky reminds us that we share our planet with billions of other animals. Through encounters with a mother sow (the eponymous Gunda), two ingenious cows, and a scene-stealing, one-legged chicken, Kossakovsky movingly recalibrates our moral universe, reminding us of the inherent value of life and the mystery of all animal consciousness, including our own.

"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
