So many amazing documentaries are coming out all the time about vegan diets, animal welfare, and the environment. In my previous post about documentaries Must-Watch Documentaries, I listed some of the absolute must-see films about these topics.
However, there are many more documentaries that I consider to be essential viewing. So if you’ve watched Forks Over Knives, Eating, Earthlings, Blackfish, Cowspiracy, etc. definitely move on to these ones.
