Get Vegucated

2011 seems to be the Year of the Plant-Powered Documentary, with Forks Over Knives and Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead taking over theaters all over. But the year ain’t over yet, and new kid on the block Vegucated is generating tons of buzz among veg leaders and on the conference circuit, where it’s been sneak previewing this summer. GGA got to sit down with a copy recently, and we found ourselves giggling and crying into our popcorn all within the 75-minute run-time.  This is the film that’s going to change some serious minds about how people from all backgrounds can choose a different lifestyle, affordably, feasibly, and whole heartedly.

You probably have read about the premise of the film: three meat and cheese lovers from different backgrounds going vegan for six weeks. Let’s just say this: Vegucated is astounding. Writer/director Marisa Miller Wolfson has taken a topic of deep seriousness and made it somehow hilarious and playful whilst simultaneously being so informative and educational that it will change your life if you let it. This is an experiment with fascinating results. Vegucated is part expose, part slapstick, and all heart. I fully recommend that everyone I know and don’t know see this provocative and impeccably researched film. I’ve yet to encounter a documentary on this topic to be handled with such down to earth polish. Please see this film. It’s been made by the blood, sweat, and tears of a shero to mother earth and all its inhabitants.

Unfortunately, before it comes to theaters, Marisa & Co. have to raise some bucks for the release and launched a Vegucated Kickstarter campaign. The campaign has been kicking ass, but they’ve still got a mega-ton of bucks to raise for a successful release. Besides heartfelt thanks and good karma, donors receive rewards like a signed DVD before the general release later this fall, a hats off in the end credits, and a Vaute Couture-designed eco fashion tee with this Einstein quote that makes us have a crush on dead physicists with funky hair: “Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.” The tees are made with recycled soda bottles, organic cotton and plant-cellulose rayon. Talk about evolution…

Check out this video to see why we can’t wait for the film to come out this fall, then help a sister out by supporting the release by pledging your support through Kickstarter. You can also say support this project by liking them on Facebook and Twitter.

Let the vegucation begin!
