Gunda
We share this planet with billions of domestic livestock, but we tend to ignore their feelings and emotions. Through an acquaintance with a pig named Gunda and her piglets, two remarkable cows and a one-legged chicken, acclaimed documentary filmmaker Viktor Kossakovsky reminds us of how precious life is and how mysterious the consciousness of all animals is, including our own.
