“An immersive and impassioned documentary from one of Britain’s most formidable filmmakers… powerful to watch”

—Andrea Arnold for Empire Magazine

Official Selection of the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, Telluride, and DOC NYC. Acclaimed director Andrea Arnold’s (American Honey, Big Little Lies) first documentary immerses the audience in life on a dairy farm in rural England through the eyes of Luma, a cow. Empathetic and nearly wordless, the film opens during calving season and captures a world of animal existence that is ordered around service to humans.
