The Cow that Sang a Song About the Future


The song of an agonizing cow leads us to the scene of a hundred cows, lying dead in a Chilean farm. Cecilia (50), daughter of the farmer who lost the cattle, travels from the city to help ease the mysterious situation. She takes her son Tomas (18), her brother and niece. Once the whole family is reunited in the patriarch's house, the mother, Magdalena, returns from the dead with an omen for Cecilia: someone in the family is soon to die. As Cecilia struggles to keep her family safe, scars from the past surface, pushing her to confront her worst fears. In a wounded world where nature expresses itself through musical pieces, this wounded family will have a chance to heal.


As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
