Food Documentary 'Vegucated' Joins International Artivist Film Festival at Columbia University
* * *
Screening & Panel Discussion to Highlight Intersections of Health & Animal Advocacy
"For six weeks, they gave up their bacon, their cheese, their kosher hot dogs. Could three New Yorkers stay on the kale wagon — or would they fall back into a vat of beef stew?" - The Washington Post
[New York, NY] Award winning documentary Vegucated will be screening as part of the Artivist Film Festival at 6pm this Thursday January 26th at Columbia University's Miller Theatre, 2960 Broadway at 116th St. NY, NY. 10027. Vegucated features three meat and cheese loving New York foodies who agree to adopt a completely vegan diet for six weeks, and follows these three very different people as they accept the challenge to abandon their old eating habits and become vegan. Hopeful the change will result in a healthier lifestyle and trimmer waistline, these individuals - Ellen, Tesla, and Brian – are surprised to discover there is much more than steak at stake as they uncover the hidden side of animal agriculture and find themselves risking everything to expose the cruel underbelly of the industry they supported only a few short weeks before.
Thought-provoking and always entertaining, Vegucated takes viewers on an eye-opening journey far beyond a few tofu food substitutions as three daring individuals share one common adventure and ultimately discover their own paths in creating a kinder, cleaner, greener
world, one bite at a time.
A spirited animal advocacy panel discussion accompanying the screening will be moderated by Mariann Sullivan of Our Hen House
and professor of animal law at Columbia Law School, featuring Vegucated film subjects Ellen and Tesla
, writer-director Marisa Miller Wolfson, executive producer Mary Max, Matt Rice from Mercy for Animals, Patrick Kwan from the Humane Society of the United States, and Amanda Schinke of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
