If Babe stole your heart and changed your eating habits, then wait until you meet Gunda. Master director Viktor Kossakovsky’s labour of love is a beguiling ode to sow Gunda (the name means female warrior) and her adorable newborn piglets. Filmed in black and white on farms in Norway, Sweden and the UK, the documentary immerses us in farmyard life and animals that range from a one-legged chicken to a herd of cattle. The star is Gunda and her tolerance of a growing, hungry family as they develop personalities of their own. A stunning vision of life on earth and an example of cinema in its purest form. GFF21

Viktor Kossakovsky shows a world that most people never notice or care to understand, one that respects other living creatures and sees, really sees, their distinct behaviors and relationships.

New York Times

Viktor Kossakovsky has crafted a visceral meditation on existence that transcends the normal barriers that separate species. It is a film of profound importance and artistry.
