Half of the population in Western society suffers from being overweight. Cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and cancer are epidemic. Our meat consumption has quintupled over the past 50 years. 65 billion land animals are being slaughtered every year for food consumption. One-third of the global grain production is fed to animals for fattening while 1.8 billion people worldwide suffer from hunger and starvation. Can there really be a solution to all these problems?

It was the search for an answer to this question that led Austrian author and filmmaker Nina Messinger on a journey through Europe, India and the US to investigate the consequences of our diet and to meet with leading experts in nutrition, medicine, science, and agriculture, as well as with farmers and people who have recovered from severe illnesses by simply changing their eating habits.

The film’s deeply distressing images and moving stories make a clear case for a plant-based diet that is not just a short-lived lifestyle trend but provides a solution for preserving our entire world. The movie serves up a stunningly simple, yet comprehensive solution – right on our plates. Changing our eating habits will rebalance not just our health, but the planet itself.

Healing of Planet Earth

H.O.P.E., which is an acronym for Healing of Planet Earth, is a life-changing documentary uncovering and revealing the effects of our typical Western diet high in animal-based foods. It contrasts the limited interests of the pharmaceutical and agricultural industry with the all-encompassing interests of living beings on this planet and with the power of responsible consumer action. H.O.P.E. is an urgent call to action to all of us to commit to a change towards sustainability and safeguarding our living environment.

It has a clear message: By changing our eating habits, we can change the world!

“This film can save your life,” said Dr. Neal Barnard of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. “Take its lessons to heart, and take control of your health. Choosing a plant-based diet will be the best decision you´ve ever made.”

The film notes “[s]ince the beginning of mankind cruelty to animals, it has never been as prevalent as it is in our days.”
