Live and Let Live (German)

Documentary in which the director introduces us to six different people who have adopted the vegan lifestyle and explores with them their reasons for doing so. Interviewees include a professional cyclist who long-listed for the 2012 Olympics; a butcher who became a vegan chef; members of the animal rights group Animal Equality; and a couple who own a sanctuary for animals that would have been sent to slaughter. I enjoyed this film that highlights not only the benefits of eating a vegan diet but more of the activist orientation behind their decisions to become vegan. There is also a brief history of the vegan movement and its origins in the mid-20th century. Finally, the film also includes interviews with several experts, including Dr. T. Colin Campbell, author of the China Study, as well as an animal rights philosopher and a legal expert. Thumbs up from me for a film that features some very interesting people with various perspectives on the more activist orientations toward being vegan. (While parts of the film are in English, some are in German with English subtitles). (2013; 3.5 Stars).
