I am very excited to see this documentary, and now, I’m officially going to the premiere in New York! I am already going to be out there in the early part of October, so it was obviously meant to be. 😉 Back to the film, though (from the site):
Vegucated is a feature-length documentary that follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks. There’s Brian, the bacon-loving bachelor who eats out all the time, Ellen, the single mom who prefers comedy to cooking, and Tesla, the college student who avoids vegetables and bans beans. They have no idea that so much more than steak is at stake and that the fate of the world may fall on their plates. Lured with true tales of weight lost and health regained, they begin to uncover hidden sides of animal agriculture and soon start to wonder whether solutions offered in films like Food, Inc.go far enough. Before long, they find themselves risking everything to expose an industry they supported just weeks before.But can their conviction carry them when times get tough? What about on family vacations fraught with skeptical step-dads, carnivorous cousins, and breakfast buffets?
Part sociological experiment, part science class, and part adventure story, Vegucated showcases the rapid and at times comedic evolution of three people who share one journey and ultimately discover their own paths in creating a kinder, cleaner, greener world, one bite at a time.
I can’t wait to see this, and bravo to the people who put it together! You can buy tickets for different screenings around the US & Canada here. Also, I’d love to meet up with some of you readers and get some awesome vegan food in NY, so if you’re up for it shoot me an email or comment! 😀
