Vacas e Rainhas

Cows and Queens

Laura Marques

Portuguese Premiere
Eligible for Heritage Award
Eligible for Short Film Award

The Herens is a breed of cattle essentially raised for tournaments where the winning cow gets the title of “Queen”. Working as a keeper for those cows for four months in the Swiss Alps, Laura gets the following advice from the previous shepherd: she has to be the queen. The advice is taken literally, thus unleashing an absurd quest for such title. Reflecting upon the power relation between humans and other animals, the film questions its one-way nature. If cows aren’t just bodies for humans to control, what are they after all?
