The 2015 film - inspired by the work of famed plant-based physician T. Colin Campbell - covers not only the health benefits of plant-based eating, but corruption in medicine, Government, and advertising which keeps said benefits under wraps.
In the existing documentary, the Plant Pure Nation team visited low-income neighbourhoods of rural America. There, they aimed to educate meat-enthusiast residents on the benefits of plant-based eating, and provide tools for success on a vegan diet.
Since the film’s 2015 release, Plant Pure has grown exponentially.

Screenings have been organized throughout the United States, and support groups - called pods - have popped up by the hundreds all over the world.
The pods are subsidiaries of the not for profit, plantpurecommunities.org, and rely on the efforts of volunteers in order to educate and affordably feed underserved communities.
Also offered by Plant Pure are recipe books and jump start packs, with frozen meals crafted to make a transition to whole-food plant-based eating accessible and easy.
With these tools, Plant Pure will soon launch its 'Healing America Campaign' wherein it will expand initiatives to bring affordable food and free nutritional education to low-income neighbourhoods, sharing the process via social media.
In the impending sequel, the feature film's creators pledge to 'go beyond health', covering climate change as it pertains to a plant based diet, and to 'empower communities to fix social and environmental problems'.
Director Nelson Campbell said: "We believe we will never heal one another, and our planet, until we empower people everywhere to fix problems, focusing first on their own communities.
"We are committed to a peaceful revolution, of people helping people, and acting boldly to preserve this beautiful blue green planet we all call home."
