The Business of Documentary Filmmaking


According to Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret, the main cause of global warming is not fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas - it’s animal agriculture.  In this groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary from intrepid filmmaker Keegan Kuhn, 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.

In today’s episode of the Plant-based profit show, we talk to Keegan Kuhn, Co-director of Cowspiracy and What The Health and several other acclaimed documentaries, who is a videographer, award-winning documentary filmmaker, and professional musician living in the east bay of San Francisco. Keegan’s film career has taken him as far as the remote interior of Alaska to document modern homesteaders, to the high deserts of the American west filming the nation’s remaining wild horses, to rural agricultural communities and dirty urban streets. He is motivated by a deep desire to shed light on vegan-themed stories and major issues around social justice.
