5 Inspiring New Films That Will Change the Way We Eat

Documentary films have the power to change the way we see the world, question how our actions are affecting others and inspire us to change for the better.

A handful ofárecent films have done a great job exposing the true cost of animal agriculture. These films challenge us to take a stand against a broken and corrupt system by choosing a plant-based diet.

When we do give up our dependence on factory farming, we say no to injustice, violence, exploitation, speciesism, hunger, chronic preventable health issues, environmental degradation, pollution, species extinction, climate change and so many other issues that come with it. The only question is: will we?

Below are a few films that poignantly make the case to change the way we eat:

What the Health

What the Health is a feature-length documentary brought to us by the award-winning creators of Cowspiracy. The film focuses on the relationship between animal agriculture and our health, along with questioning why this industry continues to be promoted despite the many known problems it’s causing.

The End of Meat

While people continue to raise awareness about the negative impact of meat on animals, our health and the earth, The End of Meat is a feature-length film that examines those impacts and alternatives to animal agriculture, and offers a vision of what the world would look like if we stopped eating animals.

Find out more at The End of Meat.

Eating You Alive

Eating You Alive takes a scientific look at the relationship between what we’re eating and chronic diseases, and how a plant-based diet can reverse, and more importantly, prevent some of the most serious health issues facing society today.

Eating Our Way to Extinction

Eating Our Way to Extinction is a feature-length documentary that examines the true impact of our current relationship with animals. It highlights ground-breaking studies on animal behavior that will change our perception of them. The film also breaks down the environmental, nutritional, and economical problems with our current food system.

Meat the Future

Meat is a problem on many fronts, but is “cultured meat,” or meat grown in a lab, the answer? Will it address the global demand for meat, reduce animal suffering, and solve other problems with animal agriculture? Will people even want it? Meat the Future follows the innovators behind Memphis Meats, a company that’s developing cultured meat and working to answer many of these questions and more.
