About the Film

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.

Customer Reviews

Paradigm shift

The images are permanently in my mind. A good thing. Made me truly reflect on my previous perceptions of organic and free range.
It doesn't judge you. It subtly asks your conscience to ask itself: is it ok. The answer for me was 'no' and no exception to no either.
Good. Really good. Back to caring about goodness for mankind and earth.

A Good Film That Makes Valid Points

The idea of this film is to show the dear viewer that its not as difficult as you thought to be a vegan or vegetarian and that there are health and environmental benefits from ding so. It then pushes into areas of animal welfare and the methods used by intensive farms.

It did open my eyes to what "organic" really meant, and without spoiling it for you I think you will be surprised also….

There are some scenes filmed in slaughterhouses showing the animals being killed so i would be nervous about letting children see this if they are young, however, i don't think we should stop teenagers from seeing what really happens and how their food arrives from pig to plate.

All in all, a well made, if biased film, but that doesn't detract from the valid points it raises and everyone can learn something from this documentary. Well worth seeing.

Inspirational

As a new vegetarian who has adopted a mostly vegan diet, I found this documentary informative, funny, moving and inspirational. It's reassuring to see other people going through the same emotions and taking the same decisions I recently have.
I wish more people would watch this film and then make the decision about what the want to eat. The world would be a healthier and better place for it.
Great film.
