About this Event

THE CANADIAN PREMIERE:

SLICE OF LIFE

The future is vegan. Here's why.

A Film by Mahesh Kothamangalam

_______________________________

Presented by Herbaland

Official Selection: Kraków International Green Film Festival

________________________________

Featuring more than 25 change-makers, politicians, athletes, medical professionals, celebrities, and CEO's of the vegan movement, Slice of Life is a groundbreaking documentary that explores the growing popularity of plant-based food all around the world.

While other documentaries have done a great job of exploring the human health, environmental and moral issues associated with animal agriculture, this documentary focuses on the solutions to those problems by taking the audience on an insightful journey into the world of plant-based meat, egg and dairy alternatives. It also features a diverse group of experts in various fields from the U.S and India which is rarely seen in other documentaries.
