New Vegan Film from Victoria Moran - A Prayer For Compassion - World Premiere!
mer. 6 mars à 00:30
(There are two options. Option One is to attend the movie screening only, which will be at 8:00pm. Option Two is to attend the red carpet gala -- which includes the movie screening at 8pm -- and is at 6:30pm. If you are attending the movie screening only, you should arrive at 7:45pm, not 6:30pm.) The incomparable, illustrious, twice-on-Oprah, international bestselling, longtime vegan and vegan activist, author of Main Street Vegan and founder of the Main Street Vegan Academy, Victoria Moran, is now a movie producer. And her new vegan-themed feature film is about to have its world premiere in New York City. If you so choose, you may see it either as a regular audience member, or as an attendee of the red carpet gala (catered by Candle Cafe, The Organic Grill, Marty's V-Burger, Riverdel Cheese, with vegan wines and other beverages). A link to buy either kind of ticket is further down below. Trailer: https://mainstreetvegan.net/a-prayer-for-compassion/ About The Film The film follows Thomas Jackson on a quest across America and the world, including to India where the sacred cow is caught in the realities of the dairy and leather industries, and ultimately to Morocco for the UN Climate Conference. Drawing on traditions including Christianity — evangelical, Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Friends (Quakers), Seventh Day Adventism, Unity, and more; Judaism; Islam; Hinduism; Buddhism; Jainism; the Native American tradition; Unitarian Universalism; Zoroastrianism; and the “spiritual but not religious” point of view — A Prayer for Compassion calls on all people of faith and spiritual seekers of every stripe. Journey with Thomas -- and, at times, his enchanting 3-year-old daughter, Melody -- on a voyage around the world, to ask the questions, “Can compassion grow to include all beings?" and, "Can people who identify as religious or spiritual come to embrace the call to include all human and nonhuman beings in our circle of respect and caring and love?” Learn from such luminaries as Will Tuttle, PhD, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Suzy Welch, Jeffrey Cohan, Bruce Friedrich, Milton Mills, MD, Charles Camosy, PhD, and Sailesh Rao, PhD, some of whom will join Thomas this evening for the post-screening Q & A.

If you RSVP on this page and don't purchase a ticket, you may not attend. Also: the red carpet gala and the movie screening may sell out. You should purchase tickets immediately to avoid being faced with a sold-out event. Personal Note: I am attending the red carper gala, and gladly paying the $75 ticket price to support this brilliant, vegan-making, vegan-activist movie and also to have a great time with wonderful people and delicious food. But even a $15 screening ticket gets you in to this world premiere AND you will be supporting this amazing film.
