Cowspiracy uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organisations are too afraid to talk about it.

“A documentary that will rock and inspire the environmental movement.” Darren Aronofsky, Director

“Cowspiracy may be the most important film made to inspire saving the planet.” Louie Psihoyos, Oscar-Winning Director of The Cove

This feature-length documentary created in the same mould as ‘Blackfish’ addresses the true impact of animal agriculture, in particular cattle, on the environment. Referring to it as the ‘sustainability secret’ the refusal by industry experts and even climate change organisations to acknowledge the issue leads to the filmmakers receiving risks to their freedom and lives.

Director Kip Anderson approaches leaders in the environmental movement, but discovers an intentional refusal to discuss the issue of animal agriculture. At the same time while whistleblowers and watchdogs warn him of the risks to his freedom and even his life if he dares to persist.

This shocking yet humorous new documentary reveals the devastating environmental impact large-scale factory farming has on our planet, and offers a path to global sustainability for a growing population.
