Die Schöne Krista trailer
This doc takes a quirky peek into the competitive world of raising cattle through bovine beauty queen Krista and her owner, Jörg Seeger. Krista may be the winner of the prestigious German Holstein Show, but it’s not easy being such a gorgeous cow – from getting blow-dried for competitions to the imminent pressures of becoming pregnant. If you can get past squeamish close-ups of pumping udders and medical exams, there’s really a heartwarming tale here about family and triumph.
Die Schöne Krista | Directed by Antje Schneider, Carsten Waldbauer (Germany 2013) documentary. Starts March 20
