Inspiring Film Night– ‘That Sugar Film’

Inspiring Film Night– ‘That Sugar Film’

Sugar is not evil…but life is SO much better when you get rid of it!

Did you know sugar is now found in about 80% of the foods we eat? With people on this planet getting sicker and sicker, what role could this sweet little substance be playing?

Damon Gameau set on a journey to find out the bitter truth. In this thoroughly entertaining film, Damon embarks on a unique experiment to document the effects of a high sugar diet on a healthy body, consuming only foods that are commonly perceived as ‘healthy’. Through this informative journey, Damon highlights some of the issues that plague the sugar industry, and where sugar lurks on supermarket shelves.

The film features guest cameos from the likes of Stephen Fry, Isabel Lucas and Brenton Thwaites, interviews with Gary Taubes, Michael Moss and Dr Kimber Stanhope plus a rocking soundtrack including Depeche Mode, Peter Gabriel and Florence and the Machine.

THAT SUGAR FILM will forever change the way you think about ‘healthy’ food (and it’ll make you laugh!).
