Andrea Arnold / GB, 2022 / 98 min.

What do we know about the animals we keep for milk, meat and leather? Andrea Arnold (American Honey) and her camera get to know dairy cow Luma, who has just had a calf. Almost without dialogue, Arnold’s first feature-length documentary raises questions about intensive livestock farming.

poster Cow (Andrea Arnold, GB 2021)

For farmers making a living from industrial farming, it’s completely normal. As soon as a cow has given birth to a calf, the calf is taken from its mother, and the mother put on a milking machine almost straight away.

Pre-film

Before the main film, you will see the short Dutch commercial film Dutchy brings you the latest world news (1958), from the Eye archive, made in Joop Geesink's famous Dollywood studios, where the Loekie de Leeuw films were also made.
