James Cameron Produces New Vegan Documentary [VIDEO]
UPDATE: The trailer for The Game Changers has officially been released! Just over one minute, the teaser features a plethora of athletes clearly thriving on a plant-based diet. You can catch glimpses of Patrik Baboumian, Kendrick Farris, Tia Blanco and Arnold Schwarzenegger in the trailer below:
The Game Changers is a new vegan documentary being directed by The Cove‘s Louis (Louie) Psihoyos, with James Cameron as the executive producer and mixed martial artist James Wilks as the producer, and is set to be released later on this year. In an interview with GetBoulder, Psihoyos stated that “the best way to turn a culture around is by making a film about it,” and added:
“The next film I’m doing is on elite athletes whose diets are plant based. The world’s strongest guy is a vegan. The world’s fastest guy, Carl Lewis, was the first to break 10 seconds, and he did it when he was a vegan. The nine-time world-champion arm-wrestler is a vegan. We’re trying to dispel the myth that you need protein from animals to become a real man. It’s being executive produced by James Cameron, so it’s going to be a great film. I’m probably more excited about this one than anything I’ve done so far because I feel like it will change things perceptibly.”
According to the website (which seems to feature Germany’s strongman Patrik Baboumian), the documentary will introduce “the world to elite athletes, special ops soldiers, visionary scientists, cultural icons, and everyday heroes–each on a mission to create a seismic shift in the way we eat and live.” There does not appear to be an official trailer for the documentary available yet, but you can stay up-to-date on the film by visiting the official website.
The Game Changers is set to premiere on January 19, 2018 at the Sundance Film Festival at 3:30PM. The documentary will be screened a total of five times during the festival. You can learn more about the showings here.
