Get Vegucated

Last Thursday, I was lucky enough to see a sneak preview of Vegucated, the story of three volunteers who go vegan for six weeks to see what happens. Here are three reasons why Vegucated is important:

  1. It covers the health, environmental and animal right aspects of being vegan.
  2. It does so within the highly entertaining and compelling story of the three volunteers.
  3. It is an incredibly approachable, informative movie. 

As a fairly old hat vegan, did I learn any new facts? Not really. Was I motivated to show this movie to everyone I know? Absolutely. Vegucated outlines every reason to be reason to be vegan and does so in an entertaining and informative manner. I laughed, I cried and I want to sign up to host a screening in 2012. For the squeamish (myself included), there are some scenes of animal cruelty but it is not the bulk, or overall tone, of the movie and is not used gratuitously. Vegucated will premiere at the Toronto Independent Film Festival on September 10th and will proceed to take over the world from there. Find a screening, host a screening, see this movie. It's important.


  1. Lucky! I'm hoping they make a stop in KC next year, I can't wait to see the film!

  2. It's fantastic! Definitely worth it!

  3. It looks like a totally dope movie. I am going to have to try to catch it.

    So it is definitely not "Behind The Mask" then if it only has a few clips of brutality against animals.

    My current must see film is "If A Tree Falls".
