Pig and shit sometimes come together in movies
This is the case, for ex. in Fernando Arrabal's Viva la muerte (English title: Long Live Death, 1971), both the pig and the shit appear in the hallucinations/imagination of the main character, a boy called Fando. The pig (it's actually a boar) is shown wearing a nun's bonnet, similar to the one on the head of the boy's young nun-teacher. As for the shit, the scene goes like this: the boy's mother shits on the head of the boy's father, who just committed suicide by cutting his veins. The boy knows that his mother got his father arrested by reporting him to the authorities.
