Monday Night Movies at North: Fed Up

alt Monday, April 6, 6 pm, North Branch

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 exposé 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. Fed Up. (DVD 2014).

Run Time: 92 minutes

Rated: PG (for thematic elements including smoking images, and brief mild language)
