COWSPIRACY: THE SUSTAINABILITY SECRET
2014, A.U.M Films & First Spark Media, 85 min, Dir: Kip Andersen, Keegan Kuhn

While much of the environmental movement focuses on such things as fossil fuel use, animal agriculture (the leading cause of deforestation, responsible for more greenhouse gases than the transportation industry) remains underreported. This eye-opening documentary marshals some shocking statistics, informative interviews and a dash of humor to examine one of the planet’s greatest threats, as intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen asks why so many are so silent about large-scale factory farming - and what we can do about it. “A documentary that will rock and inspire the environmental movement.” - Darren Aronofsky.
