Product Description

Vegucated is an award-winning documentary that follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks. There’s Brian, the bacon-loving bachelor who eats out all the time, Ellen, the single mom who prefers comedy to cooking, and Tesla, the college student who avoids vegetables and bans beans.

Ellen, Brian, and Tesla have no idea that so much more than steak is at stake and that the planet’s fate may fall on their plates. Lured by tales of weight lost and health regained, they begin to uncover hidden sides of animal agriculture that make them wonder whether solutions offered in films like Food, Inc. go far enough. Before long, they find themselves risking everything to expose an industry they supported just weeks before. But can their convictions carry them through when times get tough? What about on family vacations fraught with skeptical step-dads, carnivorous cousins, and breakfast buffets?

Part sociological experiment and part adventure comedy, Vegucated showcases the rapid and at times comedic evolution of three people who are trying their darndest to change in a culture that seems dead set against it.

Marisa has been the public face of the organization since 2003, when she first started working with co-founder Mary Max. She came from the world of children’s publishing, where she constantly nudged colleagues to recycle and to try her organic, vegan cookies.

As soon as she landed her dream job as a professional eco-nudger, she hit the ground running, teaming up with other activists around the U.S. and Canada to organize grassroots educational events for thousands of people. Some of her favorite venues include the University of Southern Indiana in her hometown of Evansville, Indiana, and Smith College, where she graduated with Latin honors and a B.A. in English Literature and German Cultural Studies. She is currently directing, producing, and editing her first feature-length documentary about veganism, entitled Vegucated. And she enjoys coaching people on how to integrate vegan routines into their daily lives through the Vegan at Heart online coaching program.

She has published several short stories and articles, translated children’s books, co-founded a sketch comedy troupe, and preached from the pulpit of several Unitarian-Universalist churches as a board member of Unitarian Universalist Animal Ministry.

She lives in Manhattan with her husband David and two cats. On any given Saturday, you might spot her at the Union Square Greenmarket, dropping off her compost and buying veggies.

  1. Brilliant work — it blew me away! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Mar 2012

    Vegucated is the the perfect film to share with friends and family to explain why you’re vegetarian or vegan, because it doesn’t preach–it shows viewers what veganism is (simple, mainstream, ethical, and fun) in a compelling and non-dogmatic way. I will be giving copies to all my friends and family who are not yet vegan.


  2. The best film of it's kind! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Mar 2012

    I found [Vegucated] to be the best film of its kind that’s ever been produced. Marisa has found just the right approach and tone to reach a mainstream audience and to inspire healthier, more environmental and more humane food choices without proselytizing or creating defensiveness. I found this film to be utterly masterful at achieving the perfect balance that will lead people to learn more about and modify their food choices while feeling enthusiastic about doing so. Creating a film about factory farming and veganism that is humorous, engaging, inspiring, shocking, thought-provoking, and completely compelling all at the same time is no small feat, but Marisa has done it. I am eager to use and share this film in my humane education work.


  3. Editors Pick! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Mar 2012

    Vegucated is fresh and fun, using humor to reach an audience without sugarcoating the issues or sacrificing the seriousness of the subject. An exceptional effort by a first-time filmmaker, this is a rare grassroots project with the ability to make it big.
