For the month of May, Green Sofa Cinema Series showcases the film ‘The Game Changers.’ Executive produced by James Cameron and Arnold Schwarzenegger, among others, ‘The Game Changers’ tells the story of elite Special Forces trainer James Wilks as he travels the world on a quest to uncover the optimal diet for human performance. Profiling elite athletes, special ops soldiers, doctors and everyday people James makes discoveries that permanently change his understanding of food and his definition of true strength. The film is timely considering the growing interest in plant-based diets. Plant-based eating has come into focus lately as a possible solution to our environmental and health woes. But many wonder how replacing animal proteins with plant proteins will affect their health, how they will feel and how it will affect their physical performance. By investigating the diets of athletes from across the sporting world, the film dispels some of the myths surrounding diet, health, and performance.
GSCS invites you to watch ‘The Game Changers’ at your leisure (free on YouTube or on Netflix), or better yet host a watch party! Join us for an online film discussion & speaker event on Wednesday May 18 to hear from our distinguished speaker, Dr. Josh Cullimore, director of preventive medicine for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
Green Sofa Cinema Series is sponsored by 350 Contra Costa, Generation Green, Sustainable Contra Costa and Sustainable Rossmoor
