On November 28th a video called, Vegan 2017 – the film was released on Youtube. I hadn’t heard anything about it or what it was about (apart from of course veganism), so i decided to watch it and see what i thought. I’m not a huge fan of certain vegan health documentaries as the facts and nutrition facts aren’t always correct or they are slightly skewed and of course biased for their own gain and purpose. However What the Health has been a huge life changer for many and has been one of the motivaters for many to go vegan or eat more plant based which is great, however there are certain parts of the documentary which irritate me. And then there are other vegan documentaries where it shows the animal slaughter and cruelty which is what some people need to see, but as i am already vegan i don’t feel the need to watch that as it just makes me sad…. however at times it can be good to see those types of clips or movies again just to rmeind myself why i am vegan and choose to be vegan. You can seee a list of documentaries HERE:
So what about Vegan 2017 – the film. I thought it was really good and it was actually a rather uplifting vegan documentary…. it showed all the successes of the vegan “movement”. It showed how plant based milk and plant based products are beocming more popular and more brands and products are appearing in the stores. It had different celebraties and athletes and doctors talk about veganism and how great it is. It showed how even if it may not seem like it, more people are going or thinking about going vegan. That even if it is happening slowly, more people are becoming aware and conscious and that veganism is spreading. Of course this bothers many people and many who are in the dairy business – and you can see how they are fighting back, such as that plant based milk can’t be called “milk” because milk is supposed to be dairy. But still, the non dairy milk selection is growing and selling rapidly.
This movie was rather uplifting and i felt rather positive after watching it. Often after a vegan documentary i can feel kind of sad and anxious because i wonder why aren’t more people going or choosing to live a more vegan lifestyle when it has so many benefits. Or that people aren’t even trying…… But now i feel like “Yes, even if it is happening slowly, things are changing!”
So i would recommend you watch it if you have 45 minutes to spare. It’s not a heavy or fact filled documentary, which can be hard or “too much” to watch at times!
If you have seen the film what do you think of it? 🙂 (Click here to watch it)
