Acclaimed Animal Film ‘The Last Pig’ To Be Screened In London

Multi-award-winning documentary film, The Last Pig, will be screened in London next week.

The film follows a pig farmer through his last year of farming, showing how he is affected by the guilt of sending animals to slaughter.

The screening will take place on March 28 at Hackney Picturehouse at 7pm.

Filmmaker Allison Argo will be a special guest at the screening, taking questions after the film.

‘Disconnect’

The film makers made the movie in an attempt to make people consider what they eat – and the source of that food.

They said: “The Last Pig will help repair that disconnect and inspire compassion for ALL living beings. 

“Through the intimacy of
its story, this unique film has the power to reach the uninitiated: an audience that has not yet taken these
critical issues to heart.”

‘Extraordinary’

According to the production team: “This beautiful film raises crucial questions about equality, the sanctity of life, and the value of compassion.

“[Protagonist] Bob Comis’ soul-bearing narrative carries us through his final year of farming pigs, the struggle to reinvent his life, and the ghosts that will haunt him forever.”

Speaking about the film, musician – and vegan – Moby said it was: “Startling, honest and deeply beautiful.”

Actor and activist, James Cromwell, said: “What an extraordinarily insightful and moving film! And profoundly important, as well. I hope this film gets the exposure it deserves.”
