Tugg Edu’s Doc “The Last Pig” Newly Available for Institutional Purchase

Tugg Edu is releasing Allison Argo’s documentary The Last Pig (DVD: $75: public libraries & high schools; $350: colleges & universities; digital rights available; https://educate.tugg.com/titles/the-last-pig), 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.” Following Bill Comis’s soul-baring personal journey, in his last year farming pigs, as he struggles to reinvent his life, and deals with ghosts that will haunt him forever, The Last Pig raises crucial questions about equality, the value of compassion, and the sanctity of life.
