About the Screening

Hi everyone,

Would you like to spend a night or afternoon with us at Little Buckets and on a very special day as March 27th is Bucket's birthday, all while watching this incredible documentary, GUNDA, that is executive produced by Joaquin Phoenix. What a time it will be as we will all be able to chat for 30 minutes prior to the film then we will be going live on YouTube right afterwards.

Purchasing a ticket, will help support Little Buckets Farm Sanctuary and we would absolutely love for to join us to watch GUNDA  (recently shortlisted for Best Feature Documentary.)

(Please know there is no horrific scenes to watch)


Experiential cinema in its purest form, GUNDA chronicles the unfiltered lives of a mother pig, a flock of chickens, and a herd of cows with masterful intimacy. Using stark, transcendent black and white cinematography and the farm's ambient soundtrack, Master director Victor Kossakowsky invites the audience to slow down and experience life as his subjects do, taking in their world with a magical patience and an other worldly perspective. GUNDA asks us to meditate on the mystery of animal consciousness, and reckon with the role humanity plays in it. Executive produced by Joaquin Phoenix

“GUNDA is a mesmerizing perspective on sentience within animal species, normally -and perhaps purposely -hidden from our view. Displays of pride and reverence, amusement and bliss at a pig’s inquisitive young; her panic, despair and utter defeat in the face of cruel trickery, are validations of just how similarly all species react and cope with events in our respective lives. Victor Kossakovsky has crafted a visceral meditation on existence that transcends the normal barriers that separate species. It is a film of profound importance and artistry.”-Joaquin Phoenix, Executive Producer"GUNDA is pure cinema. This is a film to take a bath in -it’s stripped to its essential elements, without any interference. It’s what we should all aspire to as filmmakers and audiences -pictures and sound put together to tell a powerful and profound story without rush. It’s jaw dropping images and sound put together with the best ensemble cast and you have something more like a potion than a movie.” -Paul Thomas Anderson

We hope you decide to spend this time with Little Buckets and GUNDA. It will be a special Saturday for you to remember.

About the Movie
It is a film about pigs, cows and chicken. Black and white. Without words. Without music. Victor Kossakovsky is offering not just a mesmerizing poetic work of art but also a wonderful life experience. We get to know Gunda the sow, her family and neighbors, and it gives us the reason to think about the secret of consciousness and the value of life of those with whom we share this planet.
