If Babe stole your heart and changed your eating habits, then wait until you meet GundaAquarela 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 includes a Q&A with Writer and Director Viktor Kossakovsky.
With thanks to Bertha DocHouse for hosting this Q&A session.

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.
