Running Time: 17min
Surreal images of large groups of cattle wandering around in an Indonesian landfill, living, eating, and dying in garbage follow one another in "Diary of Cattle," directed by Lidia Afrilita and David Darmadi. The viewer follows a day in the life of the cattle, sometimes forgetting from the poetic beauty of the shots that they are surviving on human waste, and occasionally brought back to the harsh reality of the environmental crisis. Raw images of the cattle are masterfully edited without any musical or narrative addition to build a powerful and poetic ecological film.
