Special Screening with local filmmakers in attendance!

Why are pigs such a despised animal? Humans and pigs share centuries of entwined history, a history that is both fraught and complicated. The filmmakers travel the world to answer this question, interviewing hunters, pet pig owners, farmers, and archaeologists. They show how the pig is unique in its strange and paradoxical relationship with us. Magnificent Beast is a journey into both our history as well as the pig’s.

Join local filmmakers, Josh & Tess Gerritsen, at the 8pm screening for a post-show Q & A! 

Tess Gerritsen – Director and Producer Tess Gerritsen is an internationally bestselling thriller author whose 28 novels include the Rizzoli and Isles crime novels, on which the hit TNT television series “Rizzoli & Isles” was based. She is also a screenwriter (“Adrift,” and “Island Zero.”) Her books are translated into 40 languages and more than 30 million copies have been sold. “Magnificent Beast” is her second collaboration with her son Josh.

Josh Gerritsen – Director and Producer Josh Gerritsen spent his childhood making short films, but focused on portrait photography for the first part of his career. After spending half a decade in New York, he moved back to Maine to start an organic farm. He and Tess collaborated on “Island Zero”, which he directed. His experience raising pigs for meat was part of the inspiration for “Magnificent Beast”.
