The feature-length documentary, which focuses on ‘hip hop and food justice’, is also directed by John Lewis – commonly known as Badass Vegan.
Hungry For Justice will explore themes such as food deserts, environmental racism, hip-hop culture, and the relationship between the pharmaceutical industry and nutrition – and features an array of celebrities including Grammy award-winning Producer, Jermaine Dupri.
According toVegNews, Lewis said: “Considering that hip-hop is the number one music genre in the world, it is only right that its platform is used for what it was originally formed for… to help the people,”
“With so many people following hip-hop and its stars, it is only right to show them there is more than meets the eye. Many of these artists are not just socially aware but they are also aware when it comes to choices of the foods they eat.”
The release date for Hungry For Justice is yet to be confirmed.
Last month it was announced vegan documentaryThe Game Changers, directed by Oscar-winner Louie Psihoyos and executive produced by Oscar-winner James Cameron, will be screened in more than 1,000 theaters across the world on September 16.
“The Game Changers is a new film executive produced by James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Jackie Chan, that documents the explosive rise of plant-based eating in professional sports, mixing real-time, groundbreaking science with cinematic stories of struggle and triumph,” says the film’s description.
