The Last Pig (trailer)

The Last Pig journeys into the life of a pig farmer as he grapples with death, searches for compassion, and finally finds the courage to change.

For over a decade, Bob Comis has provided a humane—even idyllic—life for the pigs he farms. But as he tends to his charges, he develops a closeness that begins to haunt him, and his weekly trips to the slaughterhouse become agonizing . With 250 pigs on the farm, Comis suddenly finds himself trapped by his past.

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.

It is our hope that The Last Pig will help propel a shift in our society’s relationship to non-human beings and our capacity for compassion.

See parts 2 & 3 for clips from the film, due for release in 2016.
