Top actor Kate Winslet will narrate new pro-vegan documentary Eating Our Way To Extinction according to a source involved in the film, Plant Based News can reveal.
The film, which aims to ‘expose the true cost of eating animals’, focuses on issues around compassion, environment, health and economics. Leonardo DiCaprio described a viral clip of the movie as ‘the video future generations will be wishing everyone watched today’.
A crowdfunding campaign for the film reached its target of around £140,000 in January 2017, and according to producers Otto and Ludo Brockway, they have been working hard since, with principal photography starting in August last year.
‘Vegan is fun’
According to the actor, creating vegan juices packed full of green veg including spinach, kale, cucumbers is a key part of her ‘self-care’ routine.
She added: “There’s a lot of plant-based focus in our home. My husband turning vegan is relatively recent, so that’s been a really fun education because you have to learn to be a little more inventive with foods.
