Selected for SCINEMA 2017 Pork.0 is a short documentary that follows Carl Blake II as he combats factory-farming by inventing his own breed of pig. A former computer engineer who came back to the farm after a harrowing car accident, Carl is turning the American pork system on its’ heels by producing some of the tastiest and happiest pigs in the country, all using sustainable methods. He’s reached fame and success, but he hasn’t finished his quest of making the perfect pig. Pork.0 is not only about a farmer who wants to bring accountability back to pork production, but also a portraiture of a selfless man who will stop at nothing to change a flawed system.

Science and technology is as much a part of our cultural fabric as art, music, theatre and literature. They play a significant role in our daily lives, yet, in a world dependent on science, we often take them for granted. Australia’s Science Channel believes every citizen has a right, and a responsibility, to be informed, and our mission is to create programs to bring that about.
