The Last Pig (52 m)

Directed by: Allison Argo

Friday 10/13 12:00 pm 

Rafael Film Center

This spare yet lush immersion in the daily interactions between a farmer and his pigs follows what grows from an essential awareness of kinship. Conscious of wielding the power of life and death over what society has agreed are animals to be eaten, the man still recognizes his animals as fellow sentient beings. He takes his obligation to the herd seriously, caring for it humanely. He learns from the pigs how to tend them without causing undue stress and likewise how to manage himself as their keeper. Gorgeous cinematography and a meditative score enrich this unflinching look at the season of nurture and communion, which must inevitably give way to the season of slaughter. A decade into this way of life, this pig farmer’s awareness ripens into a harvest of clear-

eyed acts of compassion.

 Confirmed Guest: Director Allison Argo
