Synopsis
A penetrating ode to farmyard motherhood akin to Viktor Kossakovsky’s Gunda (45th), Andrea Arnold’s (Wuthering Heights, 36th) powerful documentary takes us into the daily life of dairy cows. Getting up close and personal with Luma, as she gives birth to calves only to be manhandled into a steel milking brace, the camera comes eye to eye with this pathetic creature, exploring and confronting the harsh reality she faces under human control. Eschewing narration, its quiet yet profound observational approach calls for rumination on the joy and pain of life other than our own.
