The next in the showing of Green Movies presents 'Vegucated' at the Heart Centre in Headingley (LS63HN) @ 19:00
It's an award winning documentary and two cast members will be joining us for a Q&A session (via Skype to keep the carbon footprint down!). Plus there'll be a speaker from the UK Vegan Society and a Q&A. Not to mention there'll be a buffet provided by That Old Chestnut.
Also, one lucky Green Movie goer will be going home with a full cake from a free prize draw so get yourself down there!
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.
It's £7 for the film and £5 for the buffet.
If you volunteer at the Green Action Food Co-op then it's mandatory for you to come to the Meet, but not necessary for you to stick around for the Green… (although, the Green's the best bit – surely your mother told you to eat your greens, right?)
In the Meet:
We'll be discussing all the fun stuff and all the boring stuff that's been encountered this term and where we're going from here. Because, there's lots to be done.
In the Green:
We'll head to the pub – either the Packhorse or Angel Inn depending on what we're feeling.
Oh, and there'll be treats from the co-op with the odd baked cake thrown in so be sure to attend.
