Neon has released the trailer for their upcoming documentary Gunda, from director Victor Kossakowsky. The film follows the lives of a pig family, a flock of chickens, and a herd of cows as they go about their business on a farm.
This absolutely gorgeous looking film is executive produced by Jaoquin Phoenix and will be having a 1-week run in virtual cinemas December 1st before heading to theaters next year.
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.
