Without narrative, dialogue, or voice over, "Pig Roast" offers a visual study in consumption of flesh. We see the red shoe of a girl; a curled tail turning as it cooks; glowing coals; a man's eyes fluttering in the dark. Without an animal rights stance, the film explores questions of the banality of violence.
