Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret, 2014 A.U.M. Films and First Spark Media
Kip Andersen, Keegan Kuhn
Fancy yourself an environmentalist? Eat meat? Well, according to "Cowspiracy" it's time to either put your money where your mouth is and step away from that burger, or find another way to self-identify. The revelations made in this film are brutally inconvenient, for all types of eaters.
Whether you're a vegan, vegetarian, Meatless Monday supporter, pescetarian, or an organic-loving meat eater, after watching this film you'll be left thinking, a lot, about your everyday food choices and how those choices impact the sustainability of our planet.
This film has a simple thesis (based on reports by two international and independent institutions): What is being done about the impact of animal agriculture on our environment? The answers, or lack thereof, will astonish and bewilder you. If that isn't enough, the information presented about consequences of agribusiness and its direct relationship to the degradation of the environment on a global scale will make you think twice before reaching for that pork chop.
