Through a combination of hand-held and hidden camera footage, Lucent explores the darker side of Australia’s pig farming industry. Narrated by Lindsay McDougall (also known as The Doctor from Triple J), it highlights the day-to-day cruelty accepted by the industry as standard practice.
The feature-length film documents some confronting truths, capturing footage from over fifty locations around Australia. With its uncompromising approach and harrowing revelations, Lucent asks the question: how can we, as an enlightened and kind society, knowingly abide such horrific and unnecessary cruelty?
