Lucent exposes the dark underbelly of Australia’s pig farming industry, uncovering the shocking video footage of the day-to-day cruelty pigs endure as part of industry standards.
The documentary reveals hidden footage of pigs in Australian slaughterhouses sleeping in their own urine, buckets of stillborn piglets, bashing’s using metal rods, castration, the removal of ears and tails, all without any kind of pain relief.
A spokesperson for the Australian Pork Network told Daily Mail ‘the footage does not represent Australian pork producers in a fair and equitable light. It is skewed to totally misrepresent the industry’.
Lucent is the result of a successful crowdfunding campaign initiated in late 2013 to expose the animal cruelty from over 50 slaughterhouses across Australia.
