What The Health Australian Premiere + Medical Panel

  • The Astor Theatre 1 Chapel Street Saint Kilda, VIC, 3182 Australia (map)

☆ You are invited to the Southern Hemisphere Première of What The Health ☆ the highly anticipated follow up to the award-winning Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret, on Tuesday March 28 at The Astor Theater in Melbourne, Australia. Arrival and food/drink service from 6.15pm. Film commences 7.15pm.


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 ★:

✪ Dr Malcolm Mackay (Plant Based Health Australia)
✪ Dr Renae Thomas (Live Full)
✪ Dr Despina Handolias
✪ Dr Ash Nayate
✪ Moderated by: Dr Andrew Davies (New Normal Project) and Lucy Stegley (Raw Events Australia)

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 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 government and corporate 'health' organisations don't want you to see.

✪ Dinner meals need to be pre-ordered online (cut-off for placing orders is 48 hours prior to event) for pick-up upon arrival at The Astor Theatre between 6.15-7.15pm.
✪ A selection of snacks, desserts and non-alcoholic drinks will be available for purchase on the night.
