Pork.0 is an inspiring and touching short documentary that follows Carl Blake II who is using genetics to fight back against the factory farming of pork that has damaged the environment, produced bland meat and led to miserable lives for farmed pigs.
Blake, a former computer engineer began his quest after a harrowing car accident he very nearly didn’t survive.
He has already attracted attention by producing some of the tastiest and happiest pigs in the country, all using sustainable methods.
To get there, he crossed the Chinese Meishan with a wild boar following a 19th-century German breeding programme that produce the Swabian Hall. He names his pig, the Iowa Swabian Hall.
But he’s not finished there.
