You might remember when we covered the hot new documentary Vegucated – a film about three meat lovers who take a vegan challenge and get their minds blown after seeing first hand some of the shocking truths about animal agriculture.
After doubling attendance records and winning Best Documentary at the Toronto Independent Film Festival, the filmmakers are taking the show on the road.
Starting this week, the Vegucated team will be traveling from sea to shining sea, spreading the good gospel of plant-based living as part of their “Let’s Get America Vegucated!” Fall 2011 Tour.
The tour kicks off with the U.S. premiere at the SVA Theatre in New York City on Thursday, October 13. Attendees will have the chance to mingle with the cast and crew and participate in a special after party, featuring some of the city’s best vegan eats and drinks.
VIPs from NYC’s veg scene will be in attendance, including Ecorazzi’s very own Michael Parrish DuDell, who’s emceeing the evening, artist Peter Max, author/health counselor Alex Jamieson, who detoxed Morgan Spurlock after his binge in Super Size Me, Simone Reyes from the show Running Russell Simmons, and many more.
Tickets start at only $15 dollars and include admittance to the event and a special post film Q&A.
