6:00 pm – Running for Good
7:45 pm – The End Of Meat
Animal Liberation Victoria and Raw Events Australia are once again collaborating to host the next wave of highly anticipated #plantpowered documentary premieres. Across one night, two international films and a panel of inspiring speakers will take over the iconic Astor Theatre.
First up is RUNNING FOR GOOD from the award-winning co-director of Cowspiracy and What The Health. Keegan Kuhn’s new film stunningly captures the hero’s journey of world-record marathon runner and animal sanctuary founder Fiona Oakes as she attempts a 250km race through the Sahara Desert. Executive Produced by actor/activist James Cromwell and Narrated by ultra-athlete Rich Roll.
Q&A Panel Discussion (panelists soon TBA)
Fresh from its sold out New York and London premieres, THE END OF MEAT by director Marc Pierschel provides a fascinating in-depth look at a range of innovations across the globe that are accelerating the demise of the animal industry. This groundbreaking film envisions a future where meat consumption and the exploitation of animals belongs to the past. Featuring interviews with Dr Michael Klaper and over 40 other experts from fields such as law, business, philosophy and food science.
