Dr. T. Colin Campbell, author of the best-selling book The China Study, is taking his message about the health benefits of a vegan diet to the big screen with PlantPure Nation—a documentary directed and produced by his son, Nelson Campbell, who also wrote and produced Forks Over Knives. PlantPure Nation examines how political and economic forces suppress information about plant-based nutrition, and features interviews with Dr. Campbell and other world-renowned health experts such as Michael Greger, MD, and Neal Barnard, MD. The filmmakers’ Kickstarter campaign raised more than $163,000 from 1,099 supporters in just 60 days—$13,000 more than their initial goal—to finance a 23-city promotional tour of the US and Canada. West Coast screenings in California, Oregon, and Washington are being held through June 25 leading up to the film’s official release, scheduled for the week of July 4, when it will be shown in more than 100 cities.
