Airing tonight at the Roosevelt 2.o is Vegucated, the story of three meat and cheese loving people who become vegan for six weeks. The synopsis:
Part sociological experiment and part adventure comedy, Vegucated follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers 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. This entertaining documentary showcases the rapid and at times comedic evolution of three people who discover they can change the world one bite at a time.
Following the movie their will be a panel discussion with Eve Prang Plews, nutritionist and host of WMNF’s “Alternative Health” program; Isabelle Tassi, chief organizer of Tampa Bay Veg Fest and longtime vegan and animal rights activist; Lee Courtney, WMNF music director and Duncan Strauss, host of “Talking Animals” on WMNF.
