‘A Revolution of Empathy’
Posted on January 25, 2021
In the soon-to-be-released film ‘Gunda’, about a charismatic pig, there are no humans and no musical soundtrack – just the animals themselves, going about their lives.
“Every day after filming, all of my team, we felt we were becoming different people. We were becoming better. Every day of communicating with animals, surprised us every day. Every day we say they are able to joke, they able to sacrifice, they able to help each other. They’re able to smile. They are able to experience freedom, same way as we. They are able to be happy. Every day we were coming back and we were opening a new dimension in our life. I saw my team, one by one become vegetarian.”
Viktor Kossakovsky, Director of ‘Gunda’
