Fed Up: An examination of America’s obesity epidemic and the food industry’s role in aggravating it.

Apr 14, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

Medford Farmer’s Market Spring Film Series

Upending the conventional wisdom of why we gain weight and how to lose it, Fed Up unearths a dirty secret of the American food industry-far more of us get sick from what we eat than anyone has previously realized. Filmmaker Stephanie Soechtig and TV journalist Katie Couric lead us through this potent expos√© that uncovers why-despite media attention, the public’s fascination with appearance, and government policies to combat childhood obesity-generations of American children will now live shorter lives than their parents did. Written by Sundance Film Festival
