In the United States, it is estimated that 93 Million Americans are affected by obesity and 98% of food related ads that children view (3920/year) are for products high in fat, sugar, sodium. Everything we’ve been told about food and exercise for the past 30 years is dead wrong. FED UP is the film the food industry doesn’t want you to see. From Katie Couric, Laurie David (Oscar winning producer of AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH) and director Stephanie Soechtig, FED UP will change the way you eat forever. Director Soechtig stops by for a lively and informative conversation on obesity, big business and the art of deception.
“Fed Up… is definitely mad as hell. And its muckraking spirit, an anomaly in the age of giving in, is inspiring.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
“Without being preachy about it, Fed Up flat-out tells us that it is indeed past time to be fed up — to insist that action be taken, and take it ourselves. This film is a bracing wake-up call.” – Michael Sauter, Film Journal International
“This new documentary aims for something very difficult: It takes a tired subject — the obesity epidemic — and completely reframes the conversation.” – Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
