North Pole. But when the unthinkable happens, and Santa misses one

“Fed Up” free movie @ Pilgrims Market
Jan 8 @ 6:30 pm

Thirty years ago the U.S. Government issued its first ever dietary guidelines and with it one of the greatest health epidemics of our time ensued. In her documentary feature debut, executive producer and narrator Katie Couric joins Laurie David (An Inconvenient Truth), Regina Scully (The Invisible War) and Stephanie Soechtig (Tapped) to explore why, despite media attention and government policies to combat childhood obesity, generations of kids will now live shorter lives than their parents. Following a group of children for more than two years, director Stephanie Soechtig achieves a profound intimacy with them as they document their uphill battles to follow the conventional wisdom, 'diet and exercise', in order to live healthier, fuller lives. They are undertaking a mission impossible. In riveting interviews with the country's leading experts, Fed Up lays bare a decades- long misinformation campaign orchestrated by Big Food and aided and abetted by the U.S. Government.
