Brian Flegel, a bacon-loving, bartending bachelor from California who eats out most of the time and lives in Harlem. He thinks his German mother’s cooking is the best and jokes that vegans are from outer space.

Monday February 18th (Presidents Day) 6:45 PM

Three People. Six Weeks. One Challenge.


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. There’s Brian, the bacon-loving bachelor who eats out all the time, Ellen, the single mom who prefers comedy to cooking, and Tesla, the college student who avoids vegetables and bans beans. They have no idea that so much more than steak is at stake and that the fate of the world may fall on their plates. Lured with true tales of weight lost and health regained, they begin to uncover hidden sides of animal agriculture and soon start to wonder whether solutions offered in films like Food, Inc. go far enough. Before long, they find themselves risking everything to expose an industry they supported just weeks before.

But can their conviction carry them when times get tough? What about on family vacations fraught with skeptical step-dads, carnivorous cousins, and breakfast buffets?

Part sociological experiment, part science class, and part adventure story, Vegucated showcases the rapid and at times comedic evolution of three people who share one journey and ultimately discover their own paths in creating a kinder, cleaner, greener world, one bite at a time.[masked] [masked]

      Thank you, Gen. It was good meeting you at the Paul Shapiro talk. I also already watched "Vegucated" online, but I want to watch it in a group of people, because there's a different dynamic when a movie is watched in a group.

      As for "Forks Over Knives", I'm hoping that we can do a screening of that sometime within the next year or so. I have not seen that one and I really want to.

      Yes we do have Forks Over Knives on our wish list. It is a good movie. Another thing I want to remind all of is that Brian Flegel from the film, will be there for Q & A and discussion.
