COWSPIRACY: THE SUSTAINABILITY SECRET (USA, 2014, 90 min.)
Animal agriculture is responsible for emitting more greenhouse gases than the transportation industry and causes unfathomable destruction of natural resources and habitats. Yet it flourishes, almost entirely unchallenged. This groundbreaking documentary follows filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today and investigates why the world's leading environmental organizations refuse to tackle it. Despite risks to his personal safety, he offers a path to global sustainability for a growing population. Directed by Kip Andersen. Produced by Kip Andersen and Keegan Kuhn.
Introduced by Susan Vitka, Vice Chair, Board of Directors, Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital. Discussion, moderated by food and agriculture policy expert Elizabeth Kucinich, follows screening, with filmmaker Kip Andersen and Dr. Neal Barnard, Executive Director, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
