Andrea Arnold (American Honey) takes you on a seemingly simple, yet radical journey, offering an insight into the life of a dairy cow.

This mesmerising documentary gets down and dirty with Luma, a cow on a working dairy farm. Shot with a hand-held camera and at the animal’s eye-level, we stay as close to her as possible. Much like GUNDA (screened in Studio 74 in 2021) there is no voice over just great cinematic flair.

Cow is an immersive experience; from birth, rearing, intensive milking sessions, an all too brief grazing period and, eventually, the inevitable, dreaded end. All captured by Arnold’s deeply empathetic and unwavering gaze. And throughout the film are Luma’s watchful eyes, often looking directly at us. Experiencing the world from Luma’s perspective cannot help but raise questions about our relationship to the natural world and what we take from it.

Contains scenes viewers may find distressing.
