Pigasso

Digital Video
29.34 minutes

Taking its name from a painted word amusingly inscribed in pig blood on one of the walls, Pigasso documents a group of butchers slaughtering pigs in a small abattoir on the Mediterranean island of Gozo.  Filmed months before its closure, Pigasso’s  narrative unfolds in reverse in an intimate, violent and cacophonous observation of these workers as they handle animals between life and death.
