We are delighted to present two Award-winning American filmmakers. One is acclaimed musician Keegan Kuhn, founder of First Spark Media, followed by Kip Andersen, founder of Animals United Media (A.U.M) Films and Media. Both film production companies focus on social justice causes and promoting awareness and equality for all life.

After years of tireless work, their two major films, “Cowspiracy – The Sustainability Secret” in 2014, and “What the Health” in 2017, were released. With considerable depth, painstaking investigative data, and thought-provoking narrative, the films illustrate through evidence-based revelations, how adopting the vegan lifestyle is indeed the key to resolving some of the world’s biggest issues.

The two films have been viewed by hundreds of millions of people around the world and are available in 25 different languages. Thanks to these films, hundreds of thousands of people signed up for the 30-day vegan challenge, and many have opened themselves up to new ideas. Keegan and Kip’s amazing talents, combined with a selfless dedication to vital truths, have merited the films’ huge success. “My films tend to be investigative documentaries, really digging deeper than you would get in mainstream media. That definitely comes with backlash. My co-director and I have gotten lots of death threats because of talking about this industry. We’ve been harassed and tried to be silenced. But the truth is that any sort of negative impact we could potentially get for ourselves personally, is nothing compared to the negative impact we’re seeing if this industry goes unchecked.”

Touched by their selfless dedication to awakening the public on crucial issues, Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Thankfully present Keegan Kuhn and Kip Andersen the Shining World Compassion Award each, with a humble supportive token of $20,000 USD each, toward their humane project in God’s Love. May the Heavens love and shield you every day.”
