In recent years inspiring films have been made by professional film-makers and undercover campaigners, which have laid bare cruelty to animals and the environmentally destructive impact of the meat and dairy industry.
Here are 6 films that have inspired us - Damien, Jen & Judy - on our vegan journey:
1) Forks Over Knives
Researchers explore the possibility that people changing their diets from animal-based to plant-based can help eliminate or control diseases like cancer and diabetes.
2) Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret
This groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary follows intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today, and investigates why the world's leading environmental organisations are too afraid to talk about it.
Using hidden cameras and never-before-seen footage, EARTHLINGS chronicles the day-to-day practices of the largest industries in the world, all of which rely entirely on animals for profit.
4) The Ghosts In Our Machine
Activist and photojournalist Jo-Anne McArthur uses her camera to document the plight of abused and exploited animals and advocate for their rights as sentient beings.
5) Speciesism: The Movie
Filmmaker Mark Devries investigates the underworld of "factory farming" and soon discovers a growing political and intellectual movement that considers animals as important as humans.
