For more than ten years, farmer Bob Comis raised and slaughtered pigs on his farm, but throughout those years, he would often suffer from what he calls, a “series of crisis of conscience,” in which he would question the morals and ethics of raising the animals for slaughter.
In bittersweet detail, The Last Pig captures Bob’s final year of farming pigs, the joy of caring for these sentient beings, the anguish of taking them to slaughter, the search for sanctuary, and the ghosts that will haunt him forever. Comis turns his life inside out, risking his livelihood to stop the slaughter and plant a garden instead. Through this personal journey, The Last Pig raises crucial questions about equality, the value of compassion and the sanctity of life.
“Each of these pigs, if I could only ask them in a way they comprehend, would choose to live rather than die.” – Bob Comis
The Last Pig is a lyrical meditation on what it means to be a sentient creature with the power to kill. Deeply immersive, through intimate musings, the farmer reveals the growing conflict of a life spent “peddling in death.” It is a celebration of life, courage and compassion.
The Last Pig puts the ethics of animal farming into personal and sharp focus. While following Comis through the seasons as his life evolves, the film invites viewers to consider their own beliefs—and the cost their choices have on others and the environment.
The Last Pig will help propel the shift in society’s relationship to non-human beings and our capacity for compassion.
