Recording artist Mýa and actor Maggie Q are set to appear in an upcoming vegan documentary.

Directed by breakout documentarian Mahesh Kothamangalam, Slice of Life takes a critical look at our changing food system - and the potential for a 'plant-based future'.

Kothamangalam told Plant Based News: "I was inspired by the tremendous impact of documentaries like Earthlings, Forks Over Knives & Cowspiracy on consumer awareness and wanted to showcase how the food industry is changing dramatically as a result."

He aims to do this, in part, with the help of an all-star cast of contributors.

Influencers and experts

In addition to animal advocate celebrities Mýa and Maggie Q, Slice of Life will feature social media influencers and plant-based nutrition experts.

This includes Instagram stars such as Yovana Mendoza - more commonly known as Rawvana - and fitness icon Arica Sky.

Also featured in the upcoming release will be a number of the world's foremost thinkers in plant-based health, including Dr. Angie Sadeghi and Dr. Mauricio Gonzalez.

Innovation

In order to delve into the growth in our food industry, Kothamangalam has also featured forerunners in plant-based business.

Among them is Beyond Meat CEO Ethan Brown, Veggie Grill Co-founder T.K. Pillan, and JUST Co-founder Josh Balk.

In the trailer for the film, Balk says: "If we wanna make an impact on the world, we have to look at food and if we want to look at food, we have to look at companies that want to have a global massive impact."

Diversity

Kothamangalam told PBN he made the film with diversity in mind - in hopes of connecting with the widest audience possible.

He said: "The documentary features people from various ethnic, racial, professional and regional backgrounds who've transitioned to a vegan lifestyle.

"They share their experiences and perspectives which people across the board can relate to."
