Cows and Queens

Vacas e Rainhas

  • Laura Marques


For four seasons, Laura Marques has been watching over Herens cattle during their summer grazing period in the Swiss Alps. Following the advice of her predecessor, the filmmaker-cow herder strives to establish herself as “queen” of the herd. In the form of a journal, Cows and Queens reports onheroften comical attempts to film the power struggle between humans and animals... from the point of view of the latter.
