FED UP, the childhood obesity documentary is shared with footage and explanation by director Stephanie Soechtig direct from the movie's Sundance Film Festival premiere. The media, government, and food industry are all looked at, plus why thin people are victim to the same health problems as many obese people. The first look at the film is shared here on the world's only documentary talk show, hosted by Ondi Timoner. FILM INFO & DIRECTOR INFO: Thirty years ago the U.S. Government issued its first ever dietary guidelines and with it one of the greatest health epidemics of our time ensued. In her documentary feature debut, executive producer and narrator Katie Couric joins Laurie David (An Inconvenient Truth), Regina Scully (The Invisible War) and Stephanie Soechtig (Tapped) to explore why, despite media attention and government policies to combat childhood obesity, generations of kids will now live shorter lives than their parents. Upending the conventional wisdom of why we gain weight and how to lose it, Fed Up unearths the dirty little secret the food industry doesn't want you to know — far more of us are sick from what we are eating than anyone has ever realized. The truth is, only 30% of people suffering from diet-related diseases are actually obese; while 70% of us — even those of us who look thin and trim on the outside — are facing the same consequences, fighting the same medical battles as the obese among us. Following a group of children for more than two years, director Stephanie Soechtig achieves a profound intimacy with them as they document their uphill battles to follow the conventional wisdom, 'diet and exercise', in order to live healthier, fuller lives. They are undertaking a mission impossible. In riveting interviews with the country's leading experts, Fed Up lays bare a decades-long misinformation campaign orchestrated by Big Food and aided and abetted by the U.S. Government. Stephanie Soechtig is the director and producer of the award-winning documentary Tapped. Her directorial debut was hailed by critics as "stunning" and "whip-smart" and went on to sweep film festivals across the country while picking up six awards for Best Documentary Feature. Stephanie began her career in television, producing documentaries for 20/20, Primetime Live, The O'Reilly Factor, and VH1.
