Showtimes

The new film from the producer and writer of the hit documentary Forks Over Knives, PlantPure Nation answers the question people ask when informed of the greatest health truth ever: “Why haven’t I heard this before?” PlantPure Nation tells the story of three people on a quest to spread the message of one of the most important health breakthroughs of all time. When nutritional scientist and respected author Dr. T. Colin Campbell inspires Kentucky State Representative Tom Riner to propose a pilot program documenting the health benefits of a plant-based diet, they inadvertently set in motion a series of events that expose powerful forces opposed to the diet. When industry lobbyists kill the pilot program, Dr. Campbell’s oldest son Nelson decides to try his own grassroots approach in his hometown of Mebane, North Carolina. Beyond Mebane, PlantPure Nation explores the topical issues of the small family farmer, food deserts, modern medicine and the challenges of getting plant-based nutrition included in the political process. In his groundbreaking 2004 book, The China Study, as well as in the film Forks Over Knives, Dr. Campbell detailed the weight of scientific evidence that a whole foods plant-based diet can prevent and even reverse some of the most deadly health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer. In PlantPure Nation, he goes even further, offering an eye-opening look at the American health industry that just might help save your life! (Dir. by Nelson Campbell, 2015, USA, 95 mins., Not Rated)
