I Used To Mock Vegetarians...Until I Became One (And Made A Movie About It)

Director Marisa Miller Wolfson openly admits that she used to make fun of her vegetarians friends. But, like most vegetarians and vegans, she had a come-to-tofu moment when she watched a small, independent film about the meat industry. So she wrote, edited, and directed her own.
