This is a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following an intrepid filmmaker as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world's leading environmental organisations are too afraid to talk about it. As eye-opening as Blackfish (2013, dir. Gabriela Cowperthwaite) and as inspiring as An Inconvenient Truth (2006, dir. Davis Guggenheim), this shocking yet humorous documentary reveals the absolutely devastating environmental impact large-scale factory farming has on our planet.
Kip Andersen’s environmental awakening came as a result of seeing An Inconvenient Truth. After seeing the film, he began to recycle religiously, turn off lights constantly, shower infrequently, and ride a bike instead of driving. Andersen believed he was doing everything he could to help the planet by following the guidelines of national and international environmental organisations, but his life took a different direction when he found out animal agriculture is the leading cause of environmental destruction. He is the founder of Animals United Movement, a pending 501(c)3 focused on creating films and media promoting sustainability, compassion, and peace for all of Earth's inhabitants.
