Dir. Stephanie Soechtig
Documentary | U.S.A. | 2014 | 92 min.

Following a group of children for more than two years, director Stephanie Soechtig intimately documents their uphill battle to heed the conventional wisdom—“diet and exercise”—but is this “mission impossible” for the youth of America? Journalist Katie Couric guides us through this eye-opening film that exposes the food industry and chronicles the lives of three obese children struggling to lose life-threatening weight. In
riveting interviews with the country’s leading experts, Fed Up lays bare a decades-long misinformation campaign orchestrated by “Big Ag” and aided and abetted by the U.S. government—the result of which is one of the largest health epidemics in history.
