COW

COW

2021 (UNITED KINGDOM) 94 minutes

Directed by: Andrea Arnold

Debuting to rave reviews at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, renowned British filmmaker Andrea Arnold (American Honey) turns her lens towards a dynamic subject of few words, a dairy cow named Luma residing on an English farm. We meet Luma during the birth of her calf, and from there we watch with hypnotic fascination as their lives unfold. Arnold’s contemplative style lends itself beautifully to the study of this magnificent creature as she asks us to meaningfully acknowledge her services and understand her realities. The daily life of a cow is by no means glamorous, but certainly thought-provoking, within this particular examination, which moves us closer to nature.
