Synopsis: 

Cow, a 12 minute black comedy shot on 35mm, is jokingly described by writer/director, Michael Bennett as “yet another entry in the well-worn genre of aquatic bovine musical comedies”. More seriously, Cow is an allegorical tale about how relationships can fall apart over the silliest things. For the two men adrift on an endless ocean with their cow, an unfortunate Act of God sets off an escalating series of events that propel their friendship towards chaos and disaster. 

Cow stars New Zealand acting greats Ian Mune and Martyn Sanderson as two old friends on a particularly odd journey.
