The film Meatless: A film about one man’s departure from his meat is currently in production. From Big Happy Films, the documentary follows filmmaker Shane Close for 90 days as he journeys into first a vegetarian diet, then a vegan diet, and finally a raw-food diet. “Between the social and moral implications of eating ‘animal flesh,’ and the environmental impact of supporting industrial farming, I found many reasons why I should at least ‘try it on for size,’” Close says. The film’s website, which includes a blog of Close’s meatless meals and experiences, also recognizes the impact of factory farming and the amount of animals killed for consumption.
