Through this personal journey, THE LAST PIG raises crucial questions about equality, the value of compassion and the sanctity of life. 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.

It is our hope that THE LAST PIG will help propel a shift in our society’s relationship to non-human beings and our capacity for compassion.

THE LAST PIG is a documentary feature completed in February 2017. Pigs-in-wallow2.text_.logo_-1030x589

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. She is known for her emotionally-charged and deeply personal films— particularly her intimate portraits of endangered and abused animals. 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.




"Well, the answer is every creature has its own purpose on this planet. As humans have their mission to fulfill, so do animals. What we need understand is this simple logic of co-existence. And we need to make sure that the last pig on Bob’s farm won’t be our last hope for survival. Because that day might be quite possible – believe it or not. Movies like “The Last Pig” remind us that we – the humans – can and must do much better than what we do now."

"Startling, honest and deeply beautiful"--Moby

"What an extraordinarily insightful and moving film! And profoundly important, as well. I hope this film gets the exposure it deserves."--James Cromwell
