Known as “the first feminist vegan horror film,” The Herd is a brutal new short with a purpose, using female humans as a replacement for the female cows who are tortured every day in the dairy industry.
Written by Ed Pope, the film was directed and produced by Melanie Light. It stars Pollyanna McIntosh, Victoria Broom, Dylan Barnes, Sarah Jane Honeywell, Jon Campling, and Charlotte Hunter.
The Herd is currently making the film fest rounds so if you see it playing near you, be sure to check it out! For more info “like” The Herd on Facebook.
A number of kidnapped and trafficked women find themselves imprisoned in a squalid medical facility. For Paula, her continued survival relies on her basic human function. Escape, on any level, is seemingly impossible as the women are condemned to a life of enforced servitude at the whims of their captors for one reason only – their milk.
