Welcome to a special 58th New York Film Festival edition of the Film at Lincoln Center podcast. Today, programmer Rachel Rosen is joined by director Victor Kossakovsky to discuss his remarkable, heartbreaking documentary Gunda, which uses natural sound design and crisp, pastoral black-and-white cinematography to immerse the viewer in the compassionate tale of a sow who lives on a farm in Norway. The director discusses respecting nature, ethical considerations, how filmmaking is a powerful tool, the toll humanity has taken on the world, his unique approach to cinematography, and much more.
