Get (Your Friends and Family) Vegucated!

I was able to attend a screening of Vegucated last night in San Francisco and I highly recommend that you take your non-veg friends to see it if you get a chance.

Marisa Miller Wolfson is the filmmaker and the movie begins with a brief synopsis about her journey to becoming vegan. The main part of the movie, though, is about three New Yorkers who she finds via Craigslist and persuades to give veganism a try for six weeks. She takes them through a process of “vegucation” which mainly includes teaching them about how animals are treated, about some of the health benefits of eating a plant-based diet, and how to make the transition.

Most of the filming was done around 2006 so a lot of time has now passed since the 6-week challenge and 2 of the 3 people are still vegan (in fact, one of them attended the screening last night).

Vegucated is fun (except for relatively short sections on animal farming) and I think it would be very hard to walk away from it without having some significant interest in veganism and a positive view of vegans and how we are trying to make the world a better place.

Currently, the only way to see the film is to attend a screening (dates and locations). There is one in Sacramento tonight (October 26, 2011) at 6:30.

You can also host a screening in your area starting in January (more info).
