I had the privilege of viewing a wonderful movie - Vegan 2 Raw Vegan, by Mike Fields of New Zealand (yes, he got his wife Kathy into the flick <g>). A film that asks, "Will it make a difference?"
Steven Prussack of Raw Vegan Radio said, "One of my favorite raw films is Vegan 2 Raw Vegan. Not only was the film incredible, but the information is priceless! The first film that shows the difference going raw could make for an already health-conscious vegan! I absolutely loved it."
Most vegans would say their diet is pretty good. Could going 100% raw make a difference? As Mike transitions from vegan to raw vegan he goes in search of anyone else who has even heard of raw vegan. He finds an interesting variety of individuals and advocates.
You could consider this film a sequel to Morgan Spurlock's popular film, Supersize Me! Like Spurlock, Fields embarks upon a 30-day challenge, then films a video diary of his challenges and rewards as his body adjusts to a new lifestyle.
Like Spurlock, Fields does this with medical supervision.
Unlike Spurlock, Fields ends up enjoying the adventure and the changes he goes through. For the first week or so he finds the emotional and medical changes challenging, but as time progresses and his body detoxifies he finds the results quite rewarding.
I especially enjoyed the video technique when he asked his guests the questions, "What did your family and friends think about you going raw?" The replies (cut/cut/cut) - "They thought I was crazy," "They thought I was crazy," "They thought I was daft," "They thought I was crazy," and "What did this diet do for you?" - "It saved my life," "It saved my life," "It changed my life," "It saved my life," "It saved my life." I identified with those people so much that I was laughing out loud.
A friend saw the video on my desk and commented, "I didn't think much of the movie." Upon viewing it, I saw that she was considering the movie from an entertainment viewpoint. It's not an "entertainment" movie - it's a documentary. And as a documentary, I think Fields and friends did an excellent job. When I mentioned this opinion to her, she agreed.
I especially recommend this film to anybody considering, or even curious about the Raw Vegan Lifestyle. It shows you what you can expect when transitioning, and what the potential benefits are to you and your body.
We began this article with the question, "Will it make a difference?" Mike Fields concludes, "Yes!"
Two thumbs up!
