ABOUT THE FILM
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 pig farmer through his final year of raising pigs. Through sparse, intimate musings, the farmer reveals the growing conflict of a life spent “peddling in death.”

Through this personal journey, THE LAST PIG raises crucial questions about equality, the value of compassion and the sanctity of life.

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.

Creator of the film hopes that THE LAST PIG will help propel a shift in our society’s relationship to non-human beings and our capacity for compassion.
