About the Film

Director Keegan Kuhn & Kip Andersen
Production Company A.U.M. Films and First Spark Media – US / 2014 / 85 minutes

COWSPIRACY: THE SUSTAINABILITY SECRET is a groundbreaking 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.

As eye-opening as Blackfish and as inspiring as An Inconvenient Truth, this shocking yet
humorous documentary 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.
