Saw this on Georges Laraques website...the movie Earthlings released back in 2005. You can watch the movie in full for free on their website. My husband and I just sat and watched it. It's graphic, it's life changing, it's sad....it's true!!

You can only imagine how powerful a movie it is when it changes the life of a 6'3, 260 lb. tough hockey player.

The second movie to be released in Shaun Monson's documentary trilogy is UNITY...

...exploring the unifying force of consciousness found in nature, animals and humankind.

Dying to Have Known

A Documentary Film by Stephen Kroschel who sets out to find hard evidence of the effectiveness of the Gerson Therapy, a long-suppressed natual cancer treatment (plant based). Pretty fascinating!
Watch in full on YouTube!

Another film by Stephen Kroschel is The Beautiful Truth
Trailer on youtube "part 1": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ye4N8EH3dog­

This movie can be viewed on Netflix Instant Play or you can watch in various parts on youtube!

His Documentaries are great. It was one of his movie's 2 1/2 years ago that convinced me that eating a more vegan organic diet would be the best health wise for us. Steven and I met Steve Kroschel at his home in Alaska. He recommended Dying to Have Known if you knew anyone who had cancer. So when we went home I watched The Gerson Miracle which at the time was free online. Now it looks like it costs to watch but I think you can order it through Netflix. I did buy Dying to Have Known and thought it was good too.

I found these movie suggestions on another meetup message board. They all look interesting and worth watching.

Dirt! the movie
http://www.dirtthemovie.org/­

Fresh! Appears to be very similar to Food Inc. (a lot of the same people interviewed, same message, etc.) and isn't necessarily promoting a plant based diet but more or less making people think more about what they eat and where it comes from.

PLANEAT

"This visually stunning film tells the story of the scientists, farmers and chefs tackling one of the greatest problems of our age: Western culture's love affair with meat and dairy. Through an extraordinarily personal and mouth-watering culinary journey we discover the wide range of medical and environmental benefits of eating our veggies."

Whole Foods "Do Something Reel Film Festival" has Colorado Springs listed as a city screening this movie (along with Vanishing of the Bees) but when I enter a C. Springs zip code it only pulls up Denver, Boulder, and Fort Collins.
