This is a project I've been working on for a few weeks now, and it has finally come together. 杀年猪, or The Yearly Pig Killing, is as common as rice in China as we approach the New Year Festival here in Heqing. I wanted to document the event from the point of view of one local family, and record the close relationship that people here have with their food. I hope you find it interesting and enlightening.
Note: This is not for the faint of heart, nor is it intended to be. You have been forewarned.The_Pig.mp3
