Cowspiracy public screening

April 29, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Cowspiracy

The Curtin University Sustainability Policy (CUSP) Institute is pleased to host a free public screening of the movie Cowspiracy.

Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret is a groundbreaking one and a half hour long feature-length environmental documentary following intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it.

Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, water consumption and pollution, is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the transportation industry, and is a primary driver of rainforest destruction, species extinction, habitat loss, topsoil erosion, ocean “dead zones,” and virtually every other environmental ill. Yet it goes on, almost entirely unchallenged.

As Andersen approaches leaders in the environmental movement, he increasingly uncovers what appears to be an intentional refusal to discuss the issue of animal agriculture, while industry whistleblowers and watchdogs warn him of the risks to his freedom and even his life if he dares to persist.

An eye-opening, inspiring and humorous documentary that reveals the absolutely devastating environmental impact large-scale factory farming has on our planet, and offers a path to global sustainability for a growing population.

​This is one of the first screenings of this documentary in Australia and the first in Western Australia. Come and join CUSP for the movie and an informal discussion with Talia Raphaely, Dora Marinova and Matthew Chrulew afterwards.
