“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
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.”
To dispel the myth that vegan food is boring and hence convince you that going vegan isn’t as painful as made out to be, the organisers have included several other events to go with the film. Here are the logistics and schedule of the event:
They will provide some delicious vegan snacks and drinks before the film. They’ll have Tim from VegFest UK leading the discussion and Vegfam presentation. They’re going to invite local vegan chefs to demonstrate raw cooking at the end. All proceeds from the event will go to the charity Vegfam, who kindly provides food for starving people in very poor countries WITHOUT EXPLOITING ANIMALS. To further help the fundraising for Vegfam, they’ll sell raffle tickets at the door and have a raffle, so you could end up winning some real goodies!
Unfortunately they can only admit 100 people to the event, so they will only admit people who have reserved their places. To avoid disappointment, please RSVP by emailing:
