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.
a fantastic journey documentary
i did not pick this film because it was recommended... just came across it. found it to be a delight. earnest, human and delightful ... the individuals who chose to try out eating a plant-based diet were lovely people ... and really got stuck into doing it. i loved how this film sublty brought out all the issues by film clips, interviews and visiting locations. you were never ever forced to think about things, instead shown the facts. i recommend this wholeheartedly to anyone thinking of healthy eating, and in the end more compassionate eating (for their community, the world and animals)
