THE LAST PIG is an intimate journey 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 unbearable. With 250 pigs on the farm, Comis suddenly finds himself trapped by his past and facing a precarious future.
Through his personal journey, THE LAST PIG raises crucial questions about equality, the sanctity of life, and the value of compassion. Comis' soul-baring narrative carries us through his final year of farming pigs, the struggle to reinvent his life, and the ghosts that will haunt him forever.
Under the direction of six-time Emmy winner, Allison Argo and shot by cinematographer Joseph Brunette, THE LAST PIG has won multiple awards at over 40 film festivals throughout the world. The film premiered on PBS in early 2021 and is now available for streaming. The film is available to schools and libraries through Good Docs.
