04.22.2012 Vegucated Movie Screening

Next week, we will be screening Vegucated. This a FREE event, open to everyone, and food will be provided. A flier can be found HERE.

Part sociological experiment and part adventure comedy, Vegucated is an award-winning, guerrilla-style documentary that follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks.

Lured by tales of weight lost and health regained, they begin to uncover the hidden sides of animal agriculture and soon find themselves risking everything to expose an industry they supported just weeks before. But can their convictions carry them through when times get tough?

When: May 3, 2012
Where: PCC Quad
Time: 7 pm
