The most highly anticipated vegan athlete documentary that has ever been released is coming to cinemas in the UK this September!
The Game Changers by Director Louie Psihoyos and producers James Wilks and Joseph Pace is going to be exactly what its titled, a Game changer!
In 2019 veganism is seeing its biggest growth ever thanks to support from medical scientists, celebrities and athletes from around the world along with the hard work of charities and organisations fighting on the front lines of the vegan movement.
Its list of celebrity executive producers include James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jackie Chan, Lewis Hamilton, Novak Djokovic and Chris Paul.
A revolutionary new documentary about meat, protein, and strength.
The Game Changers documentary follows James Wilks who is a tactical fighting instructor who has been teaching techniques to government agencies for more than 15 years. until he was unfortunately injured and left unable to teach for at least six months, he decided to spend over 1000 hours researching and studying science on nutrition and recovery and stumbled upon a remarkable study about the roman gladiators, the Roman gladiators were predominantly vegetarian.
Motivated by this study he embarks on a journey around the globe on a quest for the truth about meat, protein, and strength.
Along the way he meets some incredible athletes such as Showcasing elite athletes such as Scott Jurek a record holding Ultramarathoner, Bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linebacker Derrick Morgan, boxing heavyweight title contender Bryant Jennings, Patrik Baboumaian who holds the strongman world record, two time Australian 400m champion Morgan Mitchell, Firefighter and Triathlete Rip Esselstyn, Eight time US national cycling champion Dotsie Bausch, American record holding weightlifter Kendrick Farris and this is just a handful of the incredible people he meets.
James also talks with Scientists, doctors and nutritionists from all over the world from companies and institutes which include; The American Urological Association, The American College of Cardiology, The Preventive Medicine Research Institute and many many more.
This documentary is going to be huge! Its definitely going to rock the boat when it comes to carnists opinions towards veganism in today’s world.
If you haven’t watched the Game Changers trailer already I would seriously recommend it! Arnold Schwarznegger opens talking about all the adverts you see in today’s world, we’re surrounded by meat, milk, cheese, yogurt, fast food adverts and more telling us to eat these things as they’re ‘manly’ and ‘good for you’ but this is just marketing designed for the specific purpose of making you want it and is not in the slightest based on reality.
He wanted to know how the original gladiators could be so powerful by eating only plants.
The Game Changers trailer also states that it is not one set of dietary guidelines for improving your performance as an athlete, another one for reversing heart disease, reversing diabetes etc, it’s the same for all of them.
Patrik Baboumian also comments “someone asked me, how can you get as strong as an ox without eating any meat?” and his answer was “Have you ever seen an ox eating meat?”
So make sure you’re at the cinema in September every single day until The Game Changers is released! We will be there, will you?
