    Film Screening of The Last Pig

    Location: 3500 Arendell Street, Morehead City
    Start Date: 04/27/2018 | End Date: 04/27/2018
    Start Time: 7:00 pm | End Time: 8:30 pm

    THE LAST PIG is a lyrical meditation on what it means to be a sentient creature with the power to kill. Deeply immersive, the film follows a farmer in his final year of slaughtering pigs. Through sparse, intimate musings, the farmer reveals his growing conflict over a life spent “peddling in death.” As the story unfolds, his struggle becomes our own. The Last Pig is a poetic snapshot of a seminal year in one man’s life as he journeys beyond the slaughterhouse.

    Allison Argo is a six-time Emmy-winning filmmaker and noted animal advocate. Her films, all broadcast by PBS and National Geographic, have won over 80 awards internationally and have reached audiences worldwide, inspiring change. For over 20 years, Argo has worked on the frontline, fighting for the just treatment of non- human beings. She is known for her emotionally-charged and deeply personal films— particularly her intimate portraits of endangered and abused animals. From exploited apes to displaced elephants, Argo has worked tirelessly on behalf of animal welfare. Her goal in making THE LAST PIG is to inspire compassion for all living beings and repair the disconnect between humans and what we consume. www.ArgoFilms.com.

    A Mad Tea Party & Literary Event based on the beloved classic

    THROUGH THE LOOKING-GLASS, by Lewis Carroll

    Set in Wonderland... with two courses of themed tea & three courses of themed tea fare; including an appetizer, our formal two tiered server (stacked with savories and sweets) and our famous grand finale dessert... (Tea fare created for you by our kitchen artists inspired by Carroll's trip into this land of imagination).

    This afternoon of whimsy will find our friends and guests attended by none other than the Mad Hatter, Alice, the March Hare, the Doormouse, the Red and White Queens, the Lion and the Unicorn, and Humpty Dumpty.

    Music, story-telling and fantasy come to life in a theatrical tea-time- this is sure to be an afternoon to remember!

    "I didn't know it was your table," said Alice: "it is laid out for a great many more than three." "Treacle..." said the Doormouse... "I want a clean cup," interrupted the Hatter...
