In this masterful, immersive cinema vérité, executive produced by Joaquin Phoenix, filmmaker Victor Kossakovsky invites the audience to share the experiences of several animals on a farm, including a pair of cows, a magnificent one-legged chicken, and its titular star, a sow who has just given birth to an inquisitive litter of piglets. Shot in sharp black and white, with no dialogue, narration, or music, Gunda eschews anthropomorphism while still encouraging a deep, compassionate connection to its subjects—and an awareness of our role in their fates.
