Francisca Alegría’s striking feature debut is a lyrical eco-fable of family, renewal, and resurrection. Polluted with the industrial waste of a nearby factory, the toxic waters of the Cruces River in southern Chile have become inhospitable to the surrounding local wildlife. Yet amongst the floating bodies of lifeless fish, the long-dead Magdalena (Mía Maestro, FRIDA, THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES) inexplicably rises to the surface and returns to her family’s dairy farm. Mysterious and meditative, THE COW WHO SANG A SONG INTO THE FUTURE skilfully connects long ignored alarms of impending environmental devastation to one family’s need to address intergenerational traumas. A Kino Lorber release.
