FMTV - Vegucated

Vegucated

Runtime: 76m 07 | Release date: 2011

This film features: Joel Fuhrman, T. Colin Campbell.

Vegucated is a guerrilla-style documentary that follows three meat-and-cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks and learn what it's all about. They have no idea that so much more than steak is at stake, and that the planet's fate may fall on their plates.

Lured by tales of weight loss and health regained, they begin to uncover hidden sides of animal agriculture that make them 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 convictions carry them through when times get tough? What about on family vacations fraught with skeptical step-dads, carnivorous cousins, and breakfast buffets?

Part sociological experiment and part adventure comedy, Vegucated showcases the rapid and at times comedic evolution of three people who are trying their darnedest to change in a culture that seems dead set against it.

The world should see this..our children would be so so sad to have a full grasp of factory farming, their parents need to see it more. There was a quote in there from the "Gates" that said something like "if slaughterhouses had glass windows the world would be vegetarian". I am truly horrified and my fence-sitting is over. Thank you for making this available, it quite literally has helped me make my decision. It has been a long time coming but as the volunteer said in the film "I wish I'd known sooner but I'm starting now!"

One the most in your face documentaries on being vegan I've ever watched. Yet so powerful in terms of making the reality of what goes on in meat production. This should be shared everywhere, the information in this documentary will ignite more people to change to being vegan, creating less pain for the animals who are tortured so that humans can feed themselves based on a diet that is way past its sale by date. I woke up after watching this and couldn't get some of the pictures out of mind, my first thought was what can I do to stop this cruelty? Our family thankfully all vegan, which makes a small dent in this money-making, cruelty driven industry. I will be sharing this to anyone who questions our choices in eating plant-based.

I cried. I cannot understand how people can be so cruel to another living soul/animals. Would be great for the population to view this documentary. I’m currently looking at vegan courses to enhance my meals as I don’t eat any meat, chicken or fish, eggs etc., and haven’t for quite a few years now. I Love the vibrancy and energy from Living foods but am interested in different food preparation. Thank you FMTV for making this documentary available. 👍

Great documentary - I had to fast forward some of the animal cruelty parts as I find these really upsetting, but I do understand why they are in the film.
