Women with Cows (2011) Trailer
Trailer for the documentary Women with Cows.
79-year-old Britt Georgsson has devoted her entire life to cows. She’s been tending them since the age of four and, despite health problems, she has no intention of abandoning her strenuous work caring for her twelve pets on the rundown family farm. She often dreams about her cows and does the mucking out even though a debilitating back injury means she has to walk with a pronounced stoop. Her sister Ingrid, one year her junior, lives in a nearby village; she can’t stand the cows but, even so, she generally helps her sister to look after the bovine family inheritance. Respected Swedish photographer and documentarist Peter Gerdehag observes both sisters over a period of time, not only during their frequent spats, but also in moments of mutual accord, when the strength of sisterly bonds triumphs over minor squabbles.
