Time & Date: 6-9 pm, Friday 13 August 2021
The Humanise Film Club is right back at you with another incredible film. On Friday 13 August we’ll be watching ‘Gunda’ by Victor Kossakowsky. This documentary follows the inhabitants of a farm: the sow Gunda, her little piglets, one-legged chicken and two cows in an intimate depiction of animal life.
About the event
The film is accessed on a new platform that requires an email address. Please join Zoom early so we can help you get access. After the screening, the Zoom session will continue at 8 pm with a reflective discussion hosted by Andrea Ku, a local bee-keeper and gardener.
As always, Humanise Film Club events are free. If you can, please consider paying full price (£5-10) or making a donation to One September.

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. Using stark, transcendent black and white cinematography and the farm’s ambient soundtrack, Master director Victor Kossakowsky 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. GUNDA asks us to meditate on the mystery of animal consciousness, and reckon with the role humanity plays in it. Executive produced by Joaquin Phoenix.
