Pig Business (12A*) + Q&A with director Tracy Worcester, Zac Goldsmith, director of The Ecologist magazine and currently overseeing the Conservative Party’s Quality of Life Policy Group and Ian Campbell MBE, recently retired from the National Pig Association as Regions Manager, owner of a pig equipment company.

Horrifyingly relevant as we wait to find out whether swine flu will become a new global pandemic.

A shocking exposé of how gruesome methods of factory farming are increasingly inflicting hidden long-term damage on public health and the environment, making a mockery of animal welfare and driving traditional, small-scale, humane farmers to the wall.

Pig Business is the result of more than four years’ fearless research across the US, Poland and the UK by passionate environmental activist Tracy Worcester, who has dedicated her life to opposing these harmful and profit-driven big business practices in food production.

UK 2009 Dir. Tracy Worcester 76 min.
