Plantpure Nation

Nelson Campbell, dir. (92 min)
PLANTPURE NATION tells the story of three people on a quest to spread the message of one of the most important health breakthroughs of all time. When nutritional scientist T. Colin Campbell speaks before the Kentucky legislature, he inspires his son, Nelson, and Kentucky Representative Tom Riner to propose a pilot program documenting the health benefits of a plant-based diet. Together, they inadvertently set in motion a series of events that expose powerful forces opposed to the diet. When industry lobbyists kill the pilot program, Nelson decides to try his own privately funded grassroots approach in his hometown of Mebane, North Carolina. He then circles back to Kentucky for a dramatic ending to the film. The creative team behind PlantPure Nation includes the Producer and Director/Writer of the hit documentary film Forks Over Knives. John Mackey and T. Colin Campbell will join the panel discussion.
