Shining a light on Australia’s pig farming industry

Back in August, I interviewed Chris Delforce, the writer and producer of Lucent, a new Australian documentary.

Lucent provides a comprehensive exposé of the largely hidden Australian pig farming industry.

Chris told me about the disturbing findings that undercover footage has revealed on Australian pig farms – the diseased and distressed sows; the dead and dying piglets; the painful procedures performed on piglets without anaesthesia; the beatings and abuse inflicted on pigs by workers; and the overcrowding and cannibalism.

Lucent premiered in Sydney in October, and has screened in other states.  On Sunday 23 November, Lucent is screening in Brisbane at Event Cinemas, Brisbane City Myer Centre from 3.00 – 5.00 pm. To purchase tickets, click here.

    Hi, Alison! It’s so good of you to help continue the public’s education about what happens on pig farms. I am so often shocked at how many people that I know are totally unaware or just don’t care. Hope all is well with you and your beautiful family! oo’s

      Hi Andra, it’s so lovely to hear from you. I agree, it is a very important issue that is usually ignored or disregarded.
      We are really well, thank you. I hope you are both well too. xxx
