It’s sometimes hard for people to change what they don’t know, and one of the best ways to spread an educational message is through the power of inspiring films.
Marc Pierschel is a documentary filmmaker who has been advocating for animals personally and professionally for decades.
Today he sits down with Dotsie and Alexandra to talk about his journey from vegetarian to vegan to animal rights activist.
He also shares some of the important insights from his films and chats about the vast cultural differences between the U.S. and Europe when it comes to embracing and expanding the reach of veganism.
