Le Cochon ("The Pig") is a fifty-minute featurette co-directed by Jean Eustache and Jean-Michel Barjol in 1970. Shot in a cinema verité style, it documents the traditional killing of a plump pig in a French rural village[1]. Eustache had directed his first version of La Rosiere de Pessac (surrounding another annual tradition in his home village) in much the same unobtrusive style two years previously. [2]
