PAST EVENT: Pig Business screening: CIJ investigative film week
Pig Business Screening at the CIJ investigative film week: 2 February
21 Jan 10

As part of the Centre for Investigative Journalism Investigative Film Week, producer Tracy Worcester and associate producer Alastair Kenneil will discuss how to avoid libel and lawsuits when conducting investigations after a screening of their film Pig Business. The documentary charts the four-year investigation into the industrialisation of pig farming.

The film begins in the UK, where Worcester discovers how supermarket labels are an unreliable guide to how and where pork has been produced. She takes us on a journey to the USA, Brazil and Poland and visits the offices of corporate leaders, European bureaucrats and banks. She finds policies that support a farming system of poor quality, damaging to the environment and which pushes traditional farmers out of business.
