When Pigs Escape is an independent, award-winning documentary about the story of Matilda, a pig who escaped from a farm to give birth to her piglets shortly after in a nearby woodland. Following a pressure campaign, the pig family was eventually rescued by Brinsley Animal Rescue and The Surge Sanctuary.
The documentary recounts the campaign to save the pig family and follows the new life of Matilda and her babies after being rescued. It is a biographical piece that invites us to look at pigs like we have never seen them before.
"When Pigs Escape is everything you want in a documentary - uplifting, sad, thoughtful and much more".
