By now, many have learned that switching to a plant-based diet is ideal for the health of our planet, but making that transition from a Standard American Diet isn’t always easy. A new feature-length documentary filmVegucateddigs deeper into that transition and examines the shift that occurs when one fully commits to eating a vegan diet.

Part sociological experiment and part adventure comedy, “Vegucated follows three meat and cheese lovers from different backgrounds who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks. Lured by tales of weight lost and health regained, they begin to uncover the hidden sides of animal agriculture that make them wonder whether solutions offered in films like “Food, Inc.” go far enough.

The film was made by longtime activist Marisa Miller Wolfson who hopes it will “further the conversation about our culture and our relationship to animals, our planet, and our bodies through our food.”

With the goal of witnessing the shift in perspective, the physical changes, as well as the logistical, social, and emotional challenges and rewards that people experience when they adopt a vegan diet, Marisa has made a film that promises to both entertain and educate.

Moby, a long-time vegan and a favorite of Ecorazzi, has said about the film, “Vegucated is one of the most effective films I’ve seen about the myriad reasons everyone should consider a vegan diet.”

Vegucated launched a Kickstarter page yesterday afternoon with the goal of raising $20,000 in one month to help fund a successful theatrical, DVD, and digital release this fall.

For those interested in helping support the film, the “Vegucated” Kickstarter page is offering a series of gifts, including a signed copy of the DVD, a GetVegucated.com fashion tee designed by Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart from Vaute Couture and made with recycled soda bottle polyester, and organic cotton, and even a private tour of the Peter Max art studio led by the artist himself.
