About the Films

planEATPLANEAT is the story of three men’s life-long search for a diet, which is good for our health, good for the environment and good for the future of the planet. With an additional cast of pioneering chefs and some of the best cooking you have ever seen, the scientists and doctors in the film present a convincing case for the  West to re-examine its love affair with meat and dairy. The film features the ground-breaking work of Dr. T Colin Campbell in China exploring the link between diet and disease, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn’s use of diet to treat heart disease patients, and Professor Gidon Eshel’s investigations into how our food choices contribute to global warming, land use and oceanic deadzones.

crudeimpactCrude Impact  “It took hundreds of millions of years for petroleum to form on Earth. It took just 150 years for human beings to bleed the planet of roughly half of this oil.”  Crude Impact is a must see documentary on world Peak Oil and its impact of  irreversible decline on the world social, political, economic, and political order.   Reviewers describe the impact of this film as disturbing, amazing, eye-opening, and impressive.   See it for yourself and decide.
