Event Details

You are invited to the Southern Hemisphere Première of ‘What the Health’ at The Astor Theatre on Tuesday March 28, 2017 in Melbourne, Australia!

What the Health (by AUM Films & Media) is a groundbreaking feature length documentary that follows the revelatory journey of intrepid filmmaker, Kip Andersen as he uncovers the deleterious impacts of highly processed industrial animal foods on our personal health and wider community. The deeper Kip investigates, the more he becomes concerned... Why would leading health organisations still continue to promote such industries despite countless medical studies and research demonstrating the harm they cause?

Off the back of hosting the sold-out Australian première of Cowspiracy, Animal Liberation Victoria are joining with Raw Events (Australia) to bring ★ What The Health ★ to The Astor Theatre in St Kilda. This iconic art deco, wide-screen cinema will provide the backdrop to a night of entertainment, enlightenment and the opportunity to enjoy the future of cinema dining with delicious offerings from some of Melbourne's best cruelty-free caterers.

Following the documentary screening, Australian medical practitioners will share their thoughts on the film in a ★ Panel Discussion and Q&A ★:

Funds raised from this première will go towards assisting Animal Liberation Victoria and The Plantrician Project with their not-for-profit advocacy to encourage the uptake of a plant-based lifestyle in the medical, business and general community.

Join us to be the first in Australia to see ★ What The Health ★ on the big screen at this special one-off premiere event! A surprising, and at times hilarious, investigative documentary, What The Health will be an eye-opener for everyone who has ever been to a doctor and wondered, “Why do they have so much stationery covered in company logos on their desk?!” This truly is the film that health organisations don't want you to see.

Iced and hot chai (from Rye Chai), kombucha from Grateful Harvest Kombucha and raw desserts from RAWBEET will be available for purchase in the foyer of The Astor from 6.15pm.
