What makes up the meat of an athlete? In the feature documentary From the Ground Up, former meat-eating college football player Santino Panico goes on a journey to rediscover the athlete within-this time, as a vegan. As he meets with vegetarian and vegan elite competitors, this story about food and sport expands to confront the social norms and the far-reaching impacts of food choices.
This is a very inspiring movie that offers a new look at high level performance potentials. Please invite your meat-eating friends and family!
The screening is free but space is limited - RSVP is required.
This is a joint event between ChicagoVeg - Chicagoland Vegetarian, Vegan, & Raw Foodist Community and National Vegetarian Museum, which generously offers a free vegan snack for all attendees!
