The Last Pig Screening

Animals, Education, Health & Wellness/Nutrition, Benefit/Fundraiser, Film

Be one of the first people to see The Last Pig, a beautiful film that explores what it means to be a sentient creature with the power to kill. Deeply immersive, the film follows a pig farmer through his final year of slaughtering pigs. Through sparse, intimate musings, the farmer reveals the growing conflict of a life spent “peddling in death.” Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2LdqogtTHtA The screening will be followed by a moderated panel of experts in animal welfare, health, environment, and economics.
