Vegucated is one of the newest documentaries on the block attempting to expose the realities of food systems and the threat to our health and the environment. Filmmakers challenged three meat eaters from New York City to go vegan for six weeks. This documentary is about what happens to these hungry but interested individuals. The trailer sneaks a peek just three weeks into their project to show them in a situation where they could get arrested for their actions in support of plants and to protect the animals. Just what happened to them, anyway?
You can find out tomorrow night at Valley Art theater with a showing and post-viewing discussion led by School of Sustainability Professor (and Chow Locally co-founder) Chris Wharton with Cathy LaSusa from Vegan Arizona.
If you're intrigued, here's the trailer:
