Vegan: Everyday Stories Documentary playing at Whistler Public Library on Tuesday, October 4th
There are a number of great movies focusing on why to go vegan or featuring people new to veganism, but this movie spotlights how everyday people and their families, each pursuing their own careers, hobbies, and passions live their lives while following a vegan lifestyle.
The movie follows ultrarunner Yassine Diboun as he journeys miles into the wilderness, running from a past that deeply affected his family and nearly cost him his life; and Renee King-Sonnen, who fell in love with the farmed animals on her husband's ranch and was determined to do whatever she could to create a sanctuary; and Jerri Hastey owner of food truck Seed On The Go who wishes to share delicious eye-catching food with the masses; and young Genesis Butler who at the tender age of 3 asked her mom where her chicken nuggets came from and now she's on a quest to protect all animals in the world.
Vegan: Everyday stories is a lighthearted and upbeat movie that also features Moby, Hip Hop Mogul Russell Simmons, football player David Carter and many other experts in the vegan movement.
Whistler itself has many of it's own vegan everyday stories. The Whistler Vegans Facebook Group has over 500 members, both locals and visitors - www.facebook.com/
Earthsave Whistler also hosts a number of other vegan events throughout the year, including the upcoming Devilishly Decadent Vegan Dessert Challenge, and Veganism 101 workshop, in celebration of World Vegan Month in November. Event listings can be found at the Earthsave Whistler Facebook page event section – www.facebook.com/
