Watch: First Trailer for 'Fed Up' Documentary, the Next 'Super Size Me'
"I can't believe we let them get away with that!" Radius-TWC has debuted the first trailer for Stephanie Soechtig's documentary Fed Up, produced by and featuring Katie Couric, who takes an eye-opening look at modern society's abundant use of sugar in connection with obesity. I hate to use a headline that so blatantly compares this to another food doc that had an impact, Morgan Spurlock's Super Size Me which premiered at Sundance 2004. But if that will get people to see this doc and actually start eating better, then screw it. I saw the premiere of this at Sundance 2014 and I think it's a very important doc for our country to get caught up in, even if it is a bit "we already know that", it can still make a big difference. Take a look at the doc below.
Here's the first trailer for Stephanie Soechtig's doc Fed Up, direct from Radius-TWC's YouTube:
This is the movie the food industry doesn't want you to see. Stephanie Soechtig's new documentary Fed Up blows the lid off everything we thought we knew about food and weight loss, revealing a 30-year campaign by the food industry, aided by the U.S. government, to mislead and confuse the American public, resulting in one of the largest health epidemics in history. 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. The documentary first premiered at Sundance 2014 (early reviews), where it was bought by indie label Radius, part of The Weinstein Company. They're releasing Fed Up in select theaters starting May 9th this summer.
