A film described as “the vegan documentary we’ve all been waiting for” is being released in cinemas next month. 

I Could Never Go Vegan, which comes from Dartmouth Films, explores and refutes some of the many arguments that non-vegans use against veganism. 

The film is directed by award-winning filmmaker Thomas Pickering, who switched to a vegan lifestyle after being raised vegetarian. Despite the undeniable benefits veganism has for animals, us, and the planet, Pickering has stated that he is constantly being told by others that they are unable to drop animal products. 

I Could Never Go Vegan is truly a film for anyone who has ever heard or said these words,” Pickering said in a statement. “It’s not uncommon for me to have daily conversations with friends, colleagues or strangers, and for them to utter these words to me. But why? That’s exactly what I wanted to explore in this film, seeking to find out whether the arguments that face the vegan movement are justified or not”

Arguments against veganism

Arguments explored in the film include “Where would I get my protein?”, that animals live a “good life,” the B12 issue, as well as the idea that veganism is too expensive

The film features a number of well-known faces in the vegan community, including environmentalist and author George Monbiot, powerlifting champion Sophia Ellis, as well as health professionals Dr Shireen Kassam, Dr Gemma Newman, and Dr Alan Desmond

Vegan actor Alicia Silverstone endorsed the film describing it as “the vegan documentary we’ve all been waiting for.” She, alongside musician Alissa White-Gluz, businesswoman Heather Mills, and actor Peter Egan, serves as executive producer.
