The Cow Who Sang a Song Into the Future: scifi movie (trailer).
In a world where cows can sing and dead women can come back to life, nothing is quite what it seems. And that’s exactly the kind of weirdness you can expect from The Cow Who Sang a Song Into the Future, the new film from director Francisca Alegría.
The movie, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, tells the story of Magdalena, a woman who rises from the dead after thousands of fish die in a polluted river in southern Chile. And yes, you read that right. Magdalena’s return sends shockwaves through her family, who are understandably freaked out by the whole thing. But as they try to come to terms with her resurrection, they begin to realize that her presence may hold the key to saving the environment.
Mía Maestro, who you may know from Hannibal, delivers a fantastic lead performance as Magdalena, bringing both a sense of mystery and a touch of humor to the role. And with beautiful cinematography from Inti Briones and a haunting score by Pierre Desprats, the film is a sensory experience from start to finish.
But it’s not just the surreal storyline and stunning visuals that make The Cow Who Sang a Song Into the Future stand out. At its heart, the film is a poignant reminder that every action we take has consequences, not just for ourselves but for the world around us. As Alegría herself says, “We are all suffering together now, and I wish that we could be more aware, more empathic, and more willing to listen.”
So, if you’re in the mood for a thought-provoking, visually stunning film that will make you laugh, cry, and question the nature of existence itself, look no further than The Cow Who Sang a Song Into the Future. And hey, who knows? Maybe you’ll even discover a newfound appreciation for singing cows.
