Last Pig

Episode 1 of 1

This award-winning documentary chronicles the life of a farmer in crisis: after a decade of raising pigs, he can no longer bear the ultimate act of betrayal. Set against the stunning backdrop of Upstate New York, THE LAST PIG documents his final year on the farm. Deeply immersive, the film is a poetic snapshot, a contemplation on compassion, ethics, and the changing landscape of animal agriculture. In intimate detail, it captures the farmer's personal upheaval as he questions his own morality and the value of life. Through the story's simple intimacy, the farmer's moral quandary quietly becomes our own.
