The Last Pig Documentary


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.

When: Tuesday, March 13 at 7 PM - 9 PM

Where: St George's Anglican Church, 1049 4th Ave. East., Owen Sound, Ontario N4K 5P7

Admission Price: FREE
