Join us for a special screening of acclaimed director Andrea Arnold’s (American Honey, Big Little Lies) first documentary COW.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with Hervé Breuil (Shelter Director at Woodstock Farm Sanctuary), Kathy Stevens (co-founder of Catskill Animal Sanctuary), and documentarian Richard Miron.
Moderated by Rachel McCrystal, Executive Director of Woodstock Farm Sanctuary.
ABOUT THE FILM: Acclaimed director Andrea Arnold’s (American Honey, Big Little Lies) first documentary immerses the audience in life on a dairy farm in rural England through the eyes of Luma, a cow. Empathetic and nearly wordless, the film opens during calving season and captures a world of animal existence that is ordered around service to humans.
Official selection: Cannes, Telluride, DOC NYC
“This film is an endeavor to consider cows. To move us closer to them. To see both their beauty and the challenge of their lives. Not in a romantic way but in a real way. It’s a film about one dairy cow’s reality and acknowledging her great service to us. When I look at Luma, our cow, I see the whole world in her.” —Andrea Arnold, Director
