Exclusive screening of GUNDA followed by Animal Law & Policy Program Executive Director Chris Green in conversation with Victor Kossakovsky the director of GUNDA.
GUNDA chronicles the lives of a mother pig, a flock of chickens, and a herd of cows, unfiltered, in black & white, with no humans, no dialogue, and no musical score––just the voices of the animals themselves and the sounds of the environments they inhabit.
Executive Produced by Joaquin Phoenix, the film provides a window to experience life as these animals do, taking in the world from their point of view. The result implores the audience to appreciate the reality of animal consciousness and emotion, while also confronting the way these sentient beings are treated by humanity––even in the most idyllic of settings.
While the film will not be widely released until mid-April, we are fortunate to be able to offer an advance sneak preview on Thursday, April 1 at 7:30pm ET. Following the screening will be my interview with GUNDA director Victor Kossakovsky about his motivations in making the film and how he ultimately was able to create such a masterful work.
