A Film by Cathy Yan
Watch the based on true events film Dead Pigs, when you want to enjoy an entertaining, humorous and thought-provoking drama.
Yes, the movie does have an odd sounding title.
However, it is inspired by an actual event, the Huangpu River dead pigs incident of 2013.
I vaguely remember hearing about it in the news, but now know more about the incident and the cultural and economic issues that shaped it.
The film is good entertainment and would be even if it weren’t based on those true events.
That just adds more depth and meaning to the movie.
Release Date 9/14/21
The fates of an unlucky pig farmer, a feisty home-owner defending her property, a lovestruck busboy, a disenchanted rich girl, and an American expat pursuing the Chinese Dream converge and collide, when thousands of dead pigs are found floating down the Huangpu River, towards a modernizing Shanghai.
