The award-winning new documentary H.O.P.E.: What You Eat Matters tackles the impact of the standard Western diet on animals, the environment, and human health head on. The film offers a compelling insight into the reasons why we should choose a vegan lifestyle and outlines the advantages of compassionate consumption.
While many documentaries focus on one specific argument for choosing to eat vegan, H.O.P.E.showcases the countless benefits. It meticulously explores the effects of a meat-based diet on animal welfare, environmental sustainability, and human health, showing just how far the positive impact of vegan eating can reach. This all-encompassing approach is aimed at encouraging people to ditch animal-derived foods once and for all.
The film features interviews with global experts on each topic – for instance, renowned primatologist and environmentalist Jane Goodall informs viewers about animal-welfare issues throughout.
The goal of this powerful documentary is to inspire – to remind viewers that their choices really do make a huge difference. Goodall sums it up best in the film:[T]he most important message that I have is to remember that you – and I’m speaking to you watching this film – you make a difference. You as an individual make a difference. What you do each day actually is affecting what’s going on in the world each day, so your life matters. You matter. And use your life wisely.
