Featuring the titular pig mother, her band of rowdy piglets, stunning black-and-white photography and a complete lack of humans and dialogue, GUNDA is a remarkably intimate and empathetic depiction of farmlife from the perspective of the animals. Directed by Viktor Kossakovsky, who also made last year’s audience favourite AQUARELA, this delicate and engrossing character study is a documentary quite unlike anything you’ve experienced before – not to mention your new favourite pig movie.
