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.
Available on QFT Player from 7pm on Sun 28 Mar, free to watch for 24 hours.
Using stark, transcendent black and white cinematography and the farm's ambient soundtrack, innovative documentary filmmaker Victor Kossakovsky (Aquarela) invites the audience to slow down and experience life as his subjects do, taking in their world with a magical patience and an otherworldly perspective.
Inspired by Kossakovsky’s own childhood experiences and a passion project which eventually came to fruition after many attempts spanning decades, Gunda had its World Premiere at the 2020 Berlin International Film Festival and was nominated for Best Documentary at the 2020 European Film Awards.
“Gunda is pure cinema. This is a film to take a bath in - it’s stripped to its essential elements, without any interference. It’s what we should all aspire to as filmmakers and audiences - pictures and sound put together to tell a powerful and profound story without rush. It’s jaw dropping images and sound put together with the best ensemble cast and you have something more like a potion than a movie.” – Paul Thomas Anderson
