Lucent documentary is a film that takes us behind the scenes in the Australian pig farming industry. In the film it exposes the day-to-day cruelty accepted within the industry.
Commonly referred to as “the Australian Earthlings”, this documentary contains footage from over 50 farms and slaughterhouses across Australia. Much of this footage has never been seen before.
The film shows how pigs are put into cages so small they cannot even turn around, living in their own urine and feces, surrounded by roaches, rats and are exposed to incredibly filthy conditions. Many piglets are often left dead on the floor rotting everywhere and not disposed of. Lots of pigs go insane and resort to cannibalism.
Lucent documentary also shows the incredibly inhumane way in which the pigs are slaughtered and how much pain and suffering these highly intelligent animals endure from the day the are born until the day they are killed. Everyone should see this film before they sit down to their next plate of bacon or pork chops.
