UPDATE: The screening has been postponed to a later date (the specific date is to be decided). We apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused anyone.
Saturday, February 4, 2017, at 2:30pm, join the National Capital Vegetarian Association in the auditorium of the Main Branch of the Ottawa Public Library for a screening of The Marshall Plan, a feature-length documentary on how one town is changing for the better as residents of Marshall, Texas are adopting plant-based diets, after their mayor Ed Smith went vegan to reverse his cancer diagnosis.
Here is the movie description, which can be found on the movie website:
“When Texas Mayor Ed Smith III was diagnosed with prostate cancer, he elected to forego conventional treatment in favor of a whole food, plant-based diet. The results were nothing short of miraculous: his cancer disappeared. He and his wife embarked on a mission to help their town and community adopt a healthier lifestyle based on plant foods. Their story is being told in THE MARSHALL PLAN. The documentary focuses on the transformation of one town into a healthier place when its residents adopted new eating strategies. The stories of Marshall’s residents are combined with interviews from expert doctors and researchers in the field of nutrition, and professional athletes.”
Come join us for an informative afternoon and snacks!
