Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way.

It’s Time to Get Vegucated!

A hot new movie about compassionate living has hit the circuit, and it may be coming to a theater near you this fall!

Vegucated is a highly entertaining and inspiring award-winning documentary that tells the stories of three meat- and cheese-lovers who agree to go vegan for six weeks and learn what it’s all about. Originally in it to lose weight and feel great, they have no idea that much more than steak is at stake and that the world’s fate may fall on their plates. But once they start to uncover the truths about animal agriculture, they wonder if solutions offered in films like Food Inc. go far enough. But can they stick to their convictions when times get tough? Part science class, part adventure comedy, and part Super Size Me in reverse, Vegucated tells the true tale 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.

Vegetarian and vegan leaders and viewers on the conference circuit this past summer have been buzzing about the film, and its world premiere broke attendance records at the Toronto Independent Film Festival last month. Now the filmmakers are taking it on the road from sea to shining sea this fall. Writer-director Marisa Miller Wolfson will be hosting Q&A sessions after each screening.

So round up your “veg-curious” friends and family—and the skeptical ones too—and invite them to a premiere near you on the “Let’s Get America Vegucated!” Autumn 2011 Tour.
