Hope for All
Half of the population in Western society suffers from being overweight. Cardio-vascular diseases, diabetes and cancer are epidemic. Our meat consumption has quintupled over the past 50 years. 65 billion land animals are being slaughtered every year for food consumption. One third of the global grain production is fed to animals while 1.8 billion people world wide suffer from hunger and starvation. Can there really be a solution to all these problems?
In her documentary, Austrian filmmaker Nina Messinger follows the tracks of our diet in Europe, India and the US. Along the way, she meets with leading experts in nutrition, medicine, and agriculture, among others, as well as with farmers and people who have recovered from severe illnesses by simply changing their diet. The film’s deeply distressing images and moving stories make a clear case for a plant-based diet.
“Hope for All” is a startling and moving documentary uncovering and revealing the effects of Western eating habits. The film is an urgent call to action to all of us to commit to a change towards sustainability and safeguarding our living environment.
