About:
An immersion into the experiences of several animals on a farm, focused on a sow and her new litter of piglets.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
In this masterful, immersive cinema vérité, executive produced by Joaquin Phoenix, filmmaker Victor Kossakovsky invites the audience to share the experiences of several animals on a farm, including a pair of cows, a magnificent one-legged chicken, and its titular star, a sow who has just given birth to an inquisitive litter of piglets. Shot in sharp black and white, with no dialogue, narration, or music, the film eschews anthropomorphism while still encouraging a deep, compassionate connection to its subjects—and an awareness of our role in their fates.
