Telluride at Dartmouth


September 21, 2021

This event occurred as part of the 21/22 Hop Film season. This is an archived view.

Auteur filmmaker Andrea Arnold (American Honey) turns her astute observational skills to the bovine world in an endeavor to consider the emotional life of a cow.

21/22 Hop Film

Made over a six-year period, Andrea Arnold's first feature-length documentary immerses us in the days and nights of Luma, a dairy cow. When Luma gives birth, she seems the happiest she can be until she is separated from her calf. The human beings monitoring and milking Luma, and leading her to graze, are seen on the edge of the frame, their voices a constant off-screen chorus of mainly affectionate, yet insistently controlling, encouragement. Through Arnold's dispassionate perspective, we might imagine Luma as noble and dignified. Yet, we also might wonder about the state of her soul. A sensuous and heartbreakingly beautiful film, Cow provokes a conversation about the emotional lives of animals. (UK, 2021, 1h34m) Courtesy of IFC
