VEGUCATED (USA, 2011, 75 min.)
Follow three meat and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks. There’s Brian, the bacon-loving bachelor who eats out all the time; Ellen, the single mom who prefers comedy to cooking and Tesla, the college student who avoids vegetables and bans beans. They have no idea that so much more than steak is at stake and that the fate of the world may fall on their plates. Part sociological experiment, part science class and part adventure story, the film showcases the rapid and at times comedic evolution of three people who share one journey and ultimately discover their own paths in creating a kinder, cleaner, greener world, one bite at a time. Written, directed and edited by Marisa Miller Wolfson. Executive Producer: Mary Max. Co-produced by Frank Mataska and Demetrius Bagley. Note: This film contains some disturbing images.
Introduced by Georgetown Day School student Josh Aaron, a leader of the Environmental Club. Discussion with filmmaker Marisa Miller Wolfson follows screening.
