If Babe stole your heart and changed your eating habits, then wait until you meet Gunda. Aquarela 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 United Kingdom, 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 hungry, growing family as they develop personalities of their own. A stunning vision of life on earth.
This screening is part of the Glasgow Film Festival and includes a Q&A with Writer and Director Viktor Kossakovsky and Bertha DocHouse Associate Programmer Jenny Horwell.
