Netflix are now showing an amazing documentary that follows six people who have switched to veganism, including former butchers and factory farmers, share their stories to examine the relationship between animals and people.
Live and Let Live is a feature documentary examining our relationship with animals, the history of veganism and the ethical, environmental and health reasons that move people to go vegan.
Food scandals, climate change, lifestyle diseases and ethical concerns move more and more people to reconsider eating animals and animal products. From butcher to vegan chef, from factory farmer to farm sanctuary owner – Live and Let Live tells the stories of six individuals who decided to stop consuming animal products for different reasons and shows the impact the decision has had on their lives.
Philosophers such as Peter Singer, Tom Regan and Gary Francione join scientists T. Colin Campbell and Jonathan Balcombe and many others to shed light on the ethical, health and environmental perspectives of veganism.
Through these stories, Live and Let Live showcases the evolution of veganism from its origins in London 1944 to one of the fastest growing lifestyles worldwide, with more and more people realizing what’s on their plates matters to animals, the environment and ultimately – themselves.
As some of you may know the “Happy Vegans” documentary attended Newcastle Vegan Festival this year on Saturday 4th July for some interviews to contribute to their documentary. They hope that their documentary will be complete by mid next year (2016) and we are inviting them back with open arms to Newcastle Vegan Festival on Saturday 7th May 2016 in which you vegans out there may have a final chance to be part of their documentary.
