Food ReLOVution

Runtime: 86m 44s | Release date: 2017

This film features: Dr. T. Colin Campbell, Dr. Vandana Shiva.

Choosing food with awareness is a revolutionary act that can change the world.

“Food Relovution: What We Eat Can Make A Difference” is an eye-opening and compelling feature documentary that examines the consequences of the meat culture as concerns grow about health, world hunger, animal welfare and the environmental cost of livestock production. It aims to show how these global issues affect everyone and are interrelated, and how making our food choices with a sense of awareness, knowing what we are buying and what we are eating is the first fundamental step towards a better world.

It aims to be an inspiring tool of understanding and empowerment, reminding us that we have the power to change things if we really want, starting with ourselves. Everything we eat has a consequence. Knowing this helps us to reflect, to understand the impact of our daily choices and to act with awareness; actions based on coherence, understanding and the love that is born from respect for Life. The change we’ve been waiting for starts with ourselves. Choice is our most powerful weapon; let us learn to use it. Only then can we make a contribution to changing the world.

There is a need for us to not simply trust the food dogmas imposed by society, but to get to know what we eat, the only way that we can kick start the revolution. A revolution carried out with love.

T. Colin Campbell

Tough reality to watch. Fortunately a lot of information is being spreed around the world, we can see the whole scenario; it arises consciousness, allows people to make better food choices and work towards a more sustainable planet. I follow a vegetarian life style 6 years ago and feel so good about it, even though my family has made small changes, I think step by step the benefits will be convincing.

The choice is very clear. We simply must change our behavior to save our lives and the planet.. it is also very difficult for people to change particularly in the United States where bad food is more affordable for those living in and around poverty.. than good fresh food is..

On my fridge is a list of "effects" that happen when you eat a whole-food plant-based diet. Things like, improve health, decrease pollution, lessen animal cruelty, save money, encourage sustainability, and so on. I'm ecstatic to see that many of those points are listed in this film. Will definitely be sharing this one with friends and family, they need to know!

Bravo and thank you Thomas Torelli and team for putting yourselves on the front lines in the face of such horror so that we may become aware of the impact of our actions. Well researched and beautifully put together, great animation. It's thanks to this kind of films that we have the opportunity to realize that it's up to each and everyone's awakening and awareness that there can be a tangible shift in our world. It's through taking into account that ultimately, it’s about love, love for ourselves and how we treat our bodies, love for each other and all sentient beings, all one with Mother Earth. In fact, I’m left with hope and the feeling of empowerment, as it is up to each of us to take action and move away from our apparent comfort zones and investigate the alternatives, which isn’t hard especially when we have so much information even here on FMTV.

“A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong, gives it a superficial appearance of being right, and raises at first a formidable outcry in defence of custom. But the tumult soon subsides. Time makes more converts than reason.”

“Our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer.”
Thomas Paine mid 1700’s

Relovution brought back these few passages I read by Thomas Paine in ‘Common Sense and Rights of Man’, so voila the time is here, to collectively take into account that in fact we do have the power to shift the direction in which we are apparently heading.

This film is eye opening and instrumental and as parent I’m grateful to know what it is that we CAN do and stop doing, for our children and the future generations to come.

Very nice movie. It combines several themes that have been covered with other movies into one whole seeing the problems with animal husbandry from several viewpoints with main emphasis on environmental impact, health impact and animal rights issues. I don't agree that the earth has too much human beings, the problem is that we need universal love to be the guiding principle in all our actions. That means we need to be vegan, it is not humanly and morally justifiable to eat animal products and eating from the lowest part of the food chain will also minimize our exposure to toxins and improve the health. We need cooperation and love instead of corporate greed and hatred. It needs a total revolution of the society based on love and compassion. And that revolution starts with the individual because we have the choice of what we eat and which consumer goods we buy.

I enjoyed watching the movie, but it was difficult to read the subtitles of the man speaking in a foreign language.
