Live and Let Live, the 2013 vegan film by German film maker Marc Pierschel has now hit Netflix worldwide.
According to Pierschel, the vegan documentary focuses on :
“The Relationship with animals, the history of veganism and the ethical, environmental and health reasons that move people to go vegan.”
Some films use footage of cruel behavior towards animals to appeal to the viewers sense compassion and ethics, such as Earthlings. Others, like Cowspiracy, focus primarily on the negative environmental impact of the meat and dairy industry. Yet again, some productions argue primarily about the ill effect of animal products on human health and performance, as do Forks Over Knives and Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.
While these films are significant landmarks in compassionate and responsible cinematography, each them only addresses one aspect that makes veganism the logical solution for today’s world.
This is where Live and Let Live differs. Rather than focusing exclusively on ethics, environmental or health, the film encompasses all three into a rich, multi-faceted discussion on veganism. It tells the stories of six people who decided to stop consuming animal products for different reasons, from a couple who transformed a dairy farm into an animal sanctuary to Jack Lindquist, professional track cyclist in pursuit of olympic glory, and shows the impact this decision has had on their lives.
Accomplished scientists such as T. Colin Campbell are joined by eminent philosophers such as Peter Singer to provide insight and shed light on the most critical issue of veganism.
