Event Details:

The Last Pig is a lyrical meditation on what it means to be a sentient creature with the power to kill. Deeply immersive, the film follows a farmer in his final year of slaughtering pigs. Through sparse, intimate musings, the farmer reveals his growing conflict over a life spent “peddling in death.” As the story unfolds, his struggle becomes our own. The Last Pig is a poetic snapshot of a seminal year in one man’s life as he journeys beyond the slaughterhouse.

This film is 53 minutes long, and is not rated.

We're excited to welcome Chef Mike Quigley as speaker for the event. Mike is the chef at Olives Community Market and co-owner of Earth to Table Catering.
