After learning about the documentary “The Last Pig” which follows the life of a pig farmer who grapples with death, searches for compassion, and finally finds the courage to change, we were inspired to help.
The film follows, Bob Comis, a pig farmer who has provided a humane—even idyllic—life for the 250 pigs he farms. He develops a closeness that begins to haunt him, and his weekly trips to the slaughterhouse become agonizing.
Through his personal journey, “The Last Pig” raises crucial questions about equality, the sanctity of life, and the value of compassion. Comis’ soul-bearing narrative carries us through his final year of farming pigs, the struggle to reinvent his life, and the ghosts that will haunt him forever.
The documentary is scheduled to be released in May 2017. For more information about “The Last Pig” visit: http://www.thelastpig.com.
