Directed by Andrea Arnold | UK | 2021 | 1h 34m

A portrait of the life of a dairy cow called Luma unflinchingly chronicling her daily life, from grazing in green fields to giving birth, making milk, and everything in between. Andrea Arnold’s (American Honey, Fishtank) mesmerising documentary shows us the world from Luma’s perspective and raises questions about our relationship to the natural world. Nominated for Best Documentary at this year’s BAFTAs.


‘Cow never wields morality as a weapon… feel however you may feel about industrial farming, but now the cow stares back.’
Clarisse Loughery, The Independent

‘An immersive and impassioned documentary from one of Britain’s most formidable filmmakers, which may be singular in its perspective but is as powerful to watch as it is painful.’
Beth Webb, Empire Magazine

These screenings will be introduced by Alex O’Connor of the Oxford Vegan and Vegetarian Society.

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
