Film Screening of The Last Pig

April 27, 2018 | 7:00 pm-8:30 pm
Carteret Community College; Joslyn Hall
3500 Arendell Street, Morehead City

THE LAST PIG is a lyrical meditation on what it means to be a sentient creature with the power to kill. Deeply immersive, the film follows a farmer in his final year of slaughtering pigs. Through sparse, intimate musings, the farmer reveals his growing conflict over a life spent “peddling in death.” As the story unfolds, his struggle becomes our own. The Last Pig is a poetic snapshot of a seminal year in one man’s life as he journeys beyond the slaughterhouse.

Allison Argo is a six-time Emmy-winning filmmaker and noted animal advocate. Her films, all broadcast by PBS and National Geographic, have won over 80 awards internationally and have reached audiences worldwide, inspiring change. For over 20 years, Argo has worked on the frontline, fighting for the just treatment of non- human beings. She is known for her emotionally-charged and deeply personal films— particularly her intimate portraits of endangered and abused animals. From exploited apes to displaced elephants, Argo has worked tirelessly on behalf of animal welfare. Her goal in making THE LAST PIG is to inspire compassion for all living beings and repair the disconnect between humans and what we consume. www.ArgoFilms.com.

Carteret Community College; Joslyn Hall. Friday, April 27, 2018. 7:00pm - 8:30pm. Doors open at 6:00pm

Due to the generosity of an anonymous donor, this event will now be FREE for the next 30 attendees.

Music, story-telling and fantasy come to life in a theatrical tea-time- this is sure to be an afternoon to remember!
