Event description

Description

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.

LIVE MUSIC - Kym Staton



Kym Staton launched into the sydney singer/songwriter scene in 2012 and has attracted a steady following after performing many gigs at intimate venues around Sydney including The Factory Theatre, The Newsagency, Dome Bar, The White Horse, Broadway Lounge, and lots of small cafes and bars. He has a unique sound that is both exotic and earthy, and a repertoire that is an eclectic concoction of blues, jazz, folk and celtic covers, weird old songs and unusual originals. His rare rock tenor voice goes from subtle to soaring in a heartbeat and his exquisite interplay of captivating vocals and a deft touch on a telecaster must to be heard to be believed.
