*WORLD PREMIERE – 2021 CANNES FILM FESTIVAL*
*OFFICIAL SELECTION – 2021 TELLURIDE FILM FESTIVAL*
First screened at the Cannes Film Festival, COW, celebrated filmmaker Andrea Arnold’s (American Honey, Fish Tank) fifth feature—and documentary debut—turns its lens towards a dairy cow named Luma residing on an English cattle farm. As she follows Luma through birthing, milking, mating, and all the circumstances that make up the life cycle of this working animal, we see both the beauty and the challenges of her life. Centering on Luma’s perspective and rarely opening to language, Arnold lets her powerful images speak for themselves—and to us—opening the door to empathy. It’s a visceral and profound journey that asks us to acknowledge her great services and to contemplate our own relationship to the natural world.
