If you haven't yet seen "Forks over Knives," then you may want to head up to Dover-Foxcroft this Sunday, May 20 at 1 p.m. to watch a free screening.
Called a "a film that can save your life" by Roger Ebert, the documentary profiles doctors and patients who have found that a whole foods, plant-based diet can treat a number of lifestyle diseases, including diabetes, heart disease and certain cancers.
Following the screening, Dr. John Herzog of Falmouth will discuss his personal and professional connections to "Forks over Knives" and Dr. Reuben Bell and Tom Lizotte, of the Mayo Regional Hospital, will answer questions from the audience.
Free Little Lads popcorn will be offered during the film, with Little Lad's vegan finger foods served during the talks that follow.
The event takes place at the Center Theatre, 20 East Main St., Dover-Foxcroft. For more information, call 949-2247 or visit www.penquisreview.com.Tweet
