World Vegan Month: Top Vegan Films

The team at Video2DVD pride ourselves on being able to offer you a reliable and effective Mini DV to DVD service, as well as providing you with some handy tips to get the best out of your home videos. In between offering you these helpful articles, we think it’s important to take a little look at the world outside of home videoing and take a peek at what’s occurring around the globe.

For example, did you know that this month is World Vegan Month? Well, whilst many people may not be vegan-converts, there are of course some wonderful documentaries out there to make you rethink the way in which many humans treat animals across the globe.

The Cove (2009)

The Cove is an Oscar-winning documentary which addresses the dolphin meat trade based in a particular town in Japan, where there appears to be an awful lot of secrecy surrounding the industry. The film actually follows the dolphin trainer from the TV show Flipper who, due to the show’s popularity, feels partly responsible towards dolphin captivity. This is a particularly poignant film at the moment given the Blackfish documentary’s ongoing impact on the public perception of SeaWorld and, as such, is an eye-opening look into the violence that these wonderful creatures are often faced with.

Vegucated (2010)

Vegucated is a film which takes three – almost devout – meat eaters and challenges them to become a vegan for six weeks. It looks into the health benefits of becoming a vegan, as well as taking the look into the way that animals are farmed. Possibly a film not for the squeamish, it certainly makes you think about the scale of which meat and fish are farmed, as well as the nature in which it is undertaken.

Super Size Me (2004)

A more light-hearted look at the gluttony culture that can often surround us, Super Size Me was a groundbreaking film upon its release. It takes a look at the effect of consuming large amounts of fast food, namely McDonalds, and the impact that this has on the body. Once in a while may seem OK, but you’ll certainly question your fast food habits after watching this documentary!

Sometimes settling in with a thought provoking documentary is just what the doctor ordered – almost literally in the case of Super Size Me! While they may not revolutionise the way you actively eat or completely impact your diet, it sometimes pays to see the other side of the story.

After watching such a film, you may well be in the mood for a touch of escapism, and what better way to escape than with your personal home videos; indulging in a bit of nostalgia!
