HSUS recently unveiled its new video about fur narrated by Woody Harrelson. Their video department did an amazing job producing this innovative video to show the realities of the fur industries without all the gore. Check it out here.
In case you missed it, last month the folks at Farm Sanctuary also released a new video. What Came Before is a 10-minute film narrated by Steve-O that discusses the mistreatment of the animals that end up on our plates. (Well, not ours.)
And, in movie news, the Oscar nominees were announced today. Three cheers for all the vegan noms!
Vegucated is a self described “guerrilla-style documentary that follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks”. Created by Marisa Miller Wolfson, Vegucated is doing its part to further awareness of the serious health and societal issues that are a direct result of eating animals. I don’t know about you, but I have a real soft spot for anyone/thing working to encourage positive change through education and self awareness, so naturally I’ve got two Vegucated tickets burning a hole in my pocket. Watch the trailer and I guarantee you’ll be itching for more too!
The film originally premiered in summer 2011 at Vegetarian Summerfest, and is now on a road trip tour across America, announcing new premiere spots along the way. Vegucated will premiere at DC’s E Street Cinema on Wednesday, November 9 at 7:30 pm. Get your tickets here!
If your like me and had to work (lame) and were not able to take the summer off to go to all the VegFest’s here is a nice little overview, by cutie (and animal activist) Jasmin Singer, of all those VegFest’s you missed. Don’t forget about the bestest VegFest of them all coming next month, the DC VegFest!
