It’s a story of food and freedom. PlantPure Nation will be screened at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Saturday, May 2, at 12 noon, followed by a Q&A with the experts who brought the film to life. (The really will start at 11:15 when Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Nelson Campbell, the film director, will address Ridgefield from the steps of The Playhouse at 11:15am followed by the screening and Q&A session.) From the producer and writer of Forks Over Knives, the film PlantPure Nation tells the story of three people on a quest to spread the message of one of the most important health breakthroughs of all time. When nutritional scientist and respected author Dr. T. Colin Campbell inspires Kentucky State Representative Tom Riner to propose a pilot program documenting the health benefits of a plant-based diet, they inadvertently set in motion a series of events that expose powerful forces opposed to the diet. When industry lobbyists kill the pilot program, Dr. Campbell’s oldest son Nelson decides to try his own grassroots approach in his hometown of Mebane, North Carolina. This event is supported by Garden of Ideas and Simpaug Farms.


PlantPure Nation was filmed across the United States and features world-renowned experts, doctors and authors. The Production team includes Director Nelson Campbell, Producer John Corry and Writer Lee Fulkerson from the acclaimed documentary Forks Over Knives. A post-screening Q&A will feature NY Times best selling author of The China Study and pioneer in the benefits of the plant-based diet Dr. T. Colin Campbell along with Nelson Campbell, Director of PlantPure Nation and son of Dr. T. Colin Campbell, and John Corry, Producer of PlantPure Nation and Forks Over Knives.


For tickets ($10), call the box office at 203-438-5795, or order online at ridgefieldplayhouse.org. The Ridgefield Playhouse is a not-for-profit performing arts center located at 80 East Ridge, parallel to Main Street, Ridgefield, CT.
