In 2018 a new film is to be released titled Eating Our Way to Extinction and highlights the true cost of animal farming. The film is crowd-funded, being produced on a budget of £140,000 and has been in production for over a year. The film features interviews with people such as Richard Branson, talking about the impact of animal agriculture on the environment.
The filmmakers, Otto and Ludo Brockway want to “expose the true cost of eating animals”. The pair has said: “The film looks at the latest science of what is happening to the ecology and climate of the planet and shows conclusive evidence that the main cause is animal agriculture.
The film will feature the latest research from some of the world’s largest studies on human health and nutrition that show beyond any doubt that a plant based diet, free from animal products, is far healthier for humans in the long term. We will be showing the explosive and damning evidence that exposes the twisted economics in the foundations of an industry that is one of the most corrupt in the world”.
Eating Our Way to Extinction follows in the footsteps of films such as Okja and What The Health, both of which had a noticeable impact on the number of people making the switch to the vegan lifestyle. This type of exposure to the masses on the realities of the meat and dairy industry is undoubtedly having a massive impact on the views people have, influencing them to make changes to their diets and lifestyle. The change in people heading towards plant based lifestyle has been described as a ‘phenomenon’, with this set to continue as the markets for meat and dairy alternatives continue to grow annually.
