Veteran filmmaker and producer John Corry’s groundbreaking feature documentary film, Forks Over Knives, has become one of the most influential and best-selling documentaries since its premiere in 2011. His other productions on diet and disease include PlantPure Nation and The Engine 2 Kitchen Rescue, both available on Netflix.
Kathryn first met John and his wife, Patty, during the filming of PlantPure Nation in 2015. She learned that John’s experience producing Forks Over Knives influenced him to change his way of eating, and eventually other family members and crew also transitioned to whole, plant-based eating.

Colin Campbell to promote whole, plant-based eating and educate people about the benefits for individual health, planet health, animal health and world hunger.
