A stark and emotionally resonant look at the life of a farm animal, opening at The Ross on Friday, May 6, COW simply yet insistently asks the viewer to reconsider their relationship with their food. “COW” doesn't interrogate the motives behind that process - leave that to "Fast Food Nation" and its ilk - but it does a fine job of generating empathy from one scene to the next and using that power to craft a hypnotic spell rife with significance. –Eric Kohn, indieWire A filmmaker infectiously attuned to movement, Arnold finds a horrible, hypnotic rhythm in these gruelingly looped procedures, though she doesn't shoot them with any surplus beauty. –Guy Lodge, Variety Alongside her observant cinematographer Magda Kowalczyk, Arnold applies that same alert and non-didactic spirit to “COW” as she follows Luma, a dairy cow who provides a great service to humankind by selflessly giving her milk away. --Tomris Laffly, RogerEbert.com COW is showing at the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center on Friday, May 6 through Thursday, May 19. Show times are available at www.TheRoss.org, by consulting your newspaper, or by calling the MRRMAC film information line at 402.472.5353. Academy Award winner Andrea Arnold returns with an intimate portrait of one dairy cow’s life. The film highlights the beauty and challenges cows face, and their great service to us all. This film is an endeavour to consider cows. To move us closer to them. To see both their beauty and the challenge of their lives. Not in a romantic way but in a real way. It's a film about one dairy cow's reality and acknowledging her great service to us.
