Carlota Pereda / ES, 2022 / 100 min.

Sara, a chubby teen in a Spanish village, is being bullied. Every single day. Until a mysterious stranger kidnaps her tormentors. Piggy had its world première at the Sundance festival and is both a solid horror production and a reflection on the consequences of bullying among teens.

poster Piggy (Carlota Pereda, ES 2021)

Every day in a stifling hot village in Extremadura, Spain, Sara – known as ‘piggy’ – swims lengths in the local swimming pool. And every time she is teased about her weight by a group of bored girls. One day, the girls decide to be extra mean to Sara – she almost drowns, all her clothes are stolen – her humiliation is complete.

Preview

Before the screening of Piggy, you can watch the short film Lili (8') from the Eye collection. In Lily (2019) by Yfke van Berckelaer, a young actress auditions for a director who rehearses the same text with her over and over again. Well played and constructed #metoo horror.
