The most important movie of 2018: The Game Changers documentary is finally here

After eight years in the making the highly anticipated movie produced by James Cameron and featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger finally debuted at the prestigious Sundance film festival in Utah, USA.

Directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Louie Psihoyos  (The Cove, Racing Extinction) and executive produced by James Cameron (Titanic, Avatar) , The Game Changers tells the story of James Wilks — elite special forces trainer and winner of The Ultimate Fighter — as he travels the world on a quest for the truth behind the world's most dangerous myth: that meat is necessary for protein, strength and optimal health. Meeting elite athletes, special ops soldiers, visionary scientists, cultural icons, and everyday heroes, what James discovers permanently changes his relationship with food and his definition of true strength.

In the film, super athletes, including world record-holding strongman Patrik Baboumian, cyclist and Olympic Silver Medalist Dotsie Bausch, and record-setting ultra marathoner Scott Jurek, testify that a plant-based diet propelled them to their athletic successes. The documentary clearly shows how people are far healthier when they adopt a plant-based diet and eliminate meat from their diet.

Also amongst the cast are leading research scientists and medical doctors who convey solid evidence of the benefits of a plant-based diet both for the environment and for people's overall health leading to a better quality of life.


If you thought What The Health caused a spike in the interest in veganism last year, prepare for a spike of epic proportions after The Game Changers is released later this year. 

This movie is sure to grab the attention of the general population and change the way people think about food. The myths 'meat is masculine', as well as the 'meat helps athletic performance' will be debunked by top scientists clearly demonstrating that, in fact, the exact opposite is true.
