Where his prior film, the acclaimed epic Aquarela, was a reminder of the fragility of human tenure on earth, in Gunda, master filmmaker Victor Kossakovsky reminds us that we share our planet with billions of other animals. Through encounters with a mother sow (the eponymous Gunda), two ingenious cows, and a scene-stealing, one-legged chicken, Kossakovsky movingly recalibrates our moral universe, reminding us of the inherent value of life and the mystery of all animal consciousness, including our own.
Victor Kossakovsky was born in Saint Petersburg on July 19, 1961. An innovative documentary filmmaker, his films have been honoured with more than 100 awards in national and international festivals. In many of his films Kossakovsky has served simultaneously as director, editor, cinematographer and writer. His distinctive filmography spans many different subjects but always explores the interplay of reality and poetic moments.
