Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret @ Celebration! Cinema Lansing
Aug 27 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

COWSPIRACY: The Sustainability Secret is a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following an intrepid filmmaker 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. 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.

We need 70 sold tickets to ensure this film takes place. Please purchase your ticket on-line here to reserve your seat: https://www.tugg.com/go/sb643s.
