Forks over Knives is now available on Netflix (Instant Play)!
http://forksoverknives.com/­

Saw this documentary advertised on The Renegade Health Show yesterday:
Cancer is Curable Now
"Marcus Freudenmann gathered up his family about 3 years
ago and decided to take them around the
world to explore all different types of
cancer treatments and doctors.

He interviewed hundreds of experts and then
took all the good ones (yes, there are bad
ones) and made a fascinating film about how
cancer is curable and can be done naturally."

It's also offered on Amazon. It's gotten pretty good reviews but one reviewer mentioned that she wished they would of interviewed more cancer patients cured by treatments featured in the film. I agree, that would be a big missing piece.

This isn't necessarily centered around a plant based lifestyle but it looks like a "thought provoking" film I'd like to see.
I Am
Film Director, Tom Shadyac, asks some of today’s most profound thinkers, two questions – What’s wrong with our world, and what can we do about it?

May I Be Frank
write up from the website:
documents the transformation of Frank Ferrante’s life. Frank is 54 years old, obese, depressed and addicted. He stumbles into a local raw, organic and vegan restaurant in San Francisco, Café Gratitude. When Ryland, a server at Café Gratitude asks Frank “What is one thing you want to do before you die?” Frank replies, “I want to fall in love one more time, but no one will love me looking the way I do”.

*we recently visited Cafe Gratitude in Berkeley. If you are ever in the San Francisco area, it's worth the stop. The food was delicious. It's true, the server will ask you "the question of the day" once you're seated. It definitely stops and makes you think. At the bottom of all their bowls it says "What are you grateful for?". We bought two and use them almost every night. I like seeing that every time I sit down to eat.

The Last Heart Attack
Is heart disease reversible through a plant based lifestyle? Dr. Sanjay Gupta investigates.

The Beautiful Truth is another really good one. It talks about a cure for cancer and other diseases just with changing your diet to vegan/vegetarian, and other changes to your lifestyle....

Earthlings, Forks over Knives, and I've seen lots others. But Earthling truly moved me the most it is a MUST see for anyone. I mean I've seen videos on youtube about animal slaughter but nothing like this.

Tribe of Heart has made a few documentaries about animals. Peaceable Kingdom is about the (dis)connection between farmers and their animals. The trailer looks amazing! But the video doesn't have a release date (although it was being screened around the US a year ago!)

All in This Tea
http://www.lesblank.com/more/TeaFilm.html­
If you enjoy drinking tea, this is a pretty interesting documentary. It also touches on the importance of earth worms for good fertilized soil and the negative effects of chemicals/pesticides on tea crops (trying to get more tea farmers in China to grow organically). You can view on Amazon for $1.99 or rent through Netflix.
