Dir. Viktor Kosakovskiy. Norway, 2021. 1h 33m.

Shot in gorgeous black-and-white, this wordless documentary of life on a farm takes us into the daily lives of a mother pig, a one-legged chicken, and a herd of cattle. The film’s breathtakingly intimate camerawork provides a profound exploration of life from an animals' perspective. Described by Paul Thomas Anderson as “pure cinema”, this award-winning documentary is an absorbing meditation on animal consciousness and the role humanity plays in it.

‘As it unfurls its immersive audiovisual tapestry it hovers between non-fiction observation and lyrical insight, and to that end feels like an advancement of the nature documentary form.’ ★★★★★ Eric Kohn, IndieWire

‘The message comes through loud and painfully clear, no dubbed voices required.’ ★★★★ A.A. Dowd, The AV Club
