Sorry, this film is no longer available.
One of the Upanishads says to "meditate on speech as a cow. The gods, men and the fathers live on her udders“. In small town Kunčice there stands an old cowshed where the cows stand in rows, humbly fulfilling their purpose. But the cowshed is being closed and the cows are taken to a new place which better meets contemporary efforts at providing cows with a more natural environment. – Department of documentary film, FAMU – 1st year (auteur reportage).
