Event Description

Join Iowa Farm Sanctuary and VegLife Des Moines for a first look at GUNDA before its release in theaters! This new documentary from executive producer Joaquin Phoenix and director Viktor Kossakovsky is an artful, close look at the lives and sentience of farmed animals.

Following the film is an exclusive prerecorded Q&A with the director and Joaquin Phoenix.

This screening is a fundraiser for Iowa Farm Sanctuary. A generous percentage of ticket sales will go directly toward farm animal rescue, veterinary care, and the daily necessities of the animals living in their forever home at IFS.

Film synopsis:

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.

Screening date and time:
Saturday, April 10 at 7:00pm.
A link with screening access will be emailed to you after your ticket purchase.
