It was produced and directed by PBN Founder Klaus Mitchell, who said the film is the result of hundreds of hours of research, investigation, and editing – and that it’s ‘great to see people enjoying it’.

He added: “”Making a feature-length documentary about the growth of the vegan movement is something I’ve wanted to do for years, and seeing new comments on the film every day reflects how many people are invested in this incredible movement.”

The documentary also won praise from prominent vegan activist Joey Carbstrong, who said: “[I watched] this at 2:00 am, and was literally cheering and clapping from my bedroom, hoping I didn’t wake up the house. Thanks so much for all your work making this!?”
