Game-Changing Vegan Documentary Debuts at Sundance

The Game Changers—a new film executively produced by famed director James Cameron—eliminates the stereotype between eating meat and masculinity by highlighting top vegan athletes.

Anticipated vegan documentary The Game Changers will debut January 19 at this year’s Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT. Director Louie Psihoyos—a former National Geographic photographer who won an Academy Award for his first documentary The Cove—dispels common myths linked to meat consumption and masculinity by focusing on a slew of vegan athletes who have thrived on a plant-based diet. Athletes featured in the 90-minute film include German strongman Patrik Baboumian, Olympian Kendrick James Ferris, champion surfer Tia Blanco, and martial artist James Wilks (the film’s producer and season nine winner of reality show The Ultimate Fighter). The film also boasts a notable list of executive producers, including Avatar director James Cameron, actress Pamela Anderson, and triathlete and author Rip Esselstyn. In addition to promoting the health benefits of a plant-based diet, The Game Changers outlines the destructive effects of animal agriculture on the environment—a concern Cameron condemned for “choking the Earth” in a recent op-ed. A public release date for The Game Changers has not yet been announced.
