Dr. T. Colin Campbell, best-selling author of The China Study, and his son Director Nelson Campbell, have teamed up to preview the feature-length documentary PlantPure Nation. The forthcoming film examines the political and economic factors that suppress information on the benefits of plant-based nutrition, while making the connections of this idea to larger issues such as medical practice, farming, and food deserts. The promotional tour mirrors the film’s story of three people working to spread the word about one of the most important health breakthroughs of all time.
The tour kicks off in Raleigh, N.C. on April 4 and ends on June 10, 2015 in Los Angeles, Calif. The Campbells will travel on the two-month nationwide bus tour through 23 cities in the U.S. and Canada to screen and discuss the film with audiences. Events will include book signings of The PlantPure Nation Cookbook authored by Kim Campbell along with meet-and-greet rallies and fan interaction that will be filmed for inclusion in the final cut of the film. Key cities to host rallies include Tampa-St. Petersburg, Toronto, and Washington, D.C.
The production team will also recruit PlantPure Nation ambassadors in each city to help build local interest in viewing the official release of the film, which is scheduled for the week of July 4th in the 23 cities toured. PlantPure Nation will continue to roll-out in more than 100 cities following the initial opening.
The tour will be launched in conjunction with a special Kickstarter campaign – (plantpurenation.com/kickstarter/) – running from March 15th to May 14th. The campaign is intended to raise additional marketing funds to bring the film to as many cities as possible after its initial launch.
PlantPure Nation was filmed across the USA and features Dr. T. Colin Campbell leading the list of world-renowned experts, doctors and authors who speak on the topic. The Production team includes Producer John Corry & Writer/Director Lee Fulkerson from the acclaimed documentary film Forks Over Knives.
