As thousands of pig carcasses float down the Yangtze River, the lives of five family members conflict and intersect in Dead Pigs, director Cathy Yan’s debut feature film. The mosaic of their stories builds a portrait of class stratification, dissolution of community and intimacy, and the impacts of hyper-capitalism in modern-day Shanghai.
