Film Screening of The Last Pig

Film Screening of The Last Pig

3500 Arendell Street, Morehead City, NC 28557, USA

April 27, 2018 | 7:00 pm-8:30 pm

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.
