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 is a contemplation on life, death and personal ethics as it follows a pig farmer grappling with his conscience. Through sparse, intimate musings, the farmer reveals the growing conflict of a life spent “peddling in death” -one he can no longer live with. The pace of the film is unhurried, allowing the viewer to experience and absorb life on the farm, the herds of pigs –so clearly intelligent and trusting, the steel and concrete slaughterhouse, and the ghosts.
With bittersweet detail, against the stunning backdrop of upstate New York, THE LAST PIG is a documentary that offers an entirely new view of small-scale livestock farming, and raises crucial questions about the ethics of eating. To watch the trailer, see http://www.thelastpig.com/

This screening will not only raise awareness about pigs to the community, but will raise needed funds for the rescued pigs at Hog Haven Farm. To benefit Hog Haven Farm, there will be a silent auction, craft beers, and exclusive apparel available for purchase on site. Vegan Van will be on site, offering delicious vegan food for purchase throughout the duration of the event. Following the film screening, Emmy-Award winning director Allison Argo will be available for Q&A with the audience, and there will be a meet and greet with two of the rescued pigs calling Hog Haven Farm their home--Felix, a loving Meishan, and Guapo, a potbellied pig!
