Killing chickens

today during Ilo Ilo filming, they killed
a chicken. The filipino actress who had to slit the chicken’s throat damn poor thing. Could see that she was obviously struggling emotionally abt the whole thing.

It was hard to see the poor chicken writhling on the toilet floor, filling the floor with its’ blood that was spilling out of its’ throat..

I’ve been thinking abt acting..and watching this whole scene/process, i kept placing myself in the filipino actress’s shoes. would i be able to handle it? would i be able to do
it? would i be as emotional as her? will it be on my conscience for a very very long time?

sigh.
