“Looking for the next Memento, Seconds, or Primer? The next twisty brain teaser flick to get excited for is PIG.” i09.COM

“A brilliant sci-fi thriller! The most provocative film I saw at the Palm Springs International Film Festival.” Robin E Simmons, DESERT STAR WEEKLY

“A great indie flick. Part drama, science fiction, and thriller all tightly wrapped into one captivating mystery. Pig is an impeccably crafted indie gem that genre fans need to see. Highly recommended.” Craig Hamann, CULTCUTS MAGAZINE

“One of the most effective elements of this science-fiction thriller is its ability at keeping the audience guessing till the end. Rudolf Martin is captivating as a man searching for answers. His subtle performance recalls Guy Pearce in Memento. Thought provoking ideas…linger long after the final reveal takes place.” Michael Haffner, DESTROY THE BRAIN

“Mesmerizing sci-fi film…smartly written, directed and produced. In the genre of a very good Rod Serling or Nolan’s Memento, this indie film keeps you guessing to the very end.” John Compisi, SONOMA EXAMINER

“A riveting adventure of confusion and identity. Barrial has crafted a first-rate mystery-thriller with sci-fi elements [providing] twists-a-plenty, and Martin delivers an excellent, layered performance in the always challenging who-am-I role.” Clint O’Connor, CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER

Join us for a premiere screening of PIG, one of the most acclaimed sci-fi films of the past two years. An official selection at over 35 international film festivals, PIG won 10 awards, including 7 Best Feature awards.

We are especially delighted to welcome producer Mark Stolaroff, who will do a Question & Answer with the audience after the film.
