Sugar Coated

Canada 2015. Dir: Michèle Hozer. 90 min. DCP

EXCLUSIVE FIRST RUN! ► Is sugar toxic? Is it responsible for the biggest medical epidemic ever? Is the sugar industry using the same playbook once used by Big Tobacco to fudge the science and fight regulation? These are the provocative questions raised by the sharp, forceful new documentary Sugar Coated, filmed in part in Vancouver. Sugar intake has skyrocketed in the last 30 years to levels unprecedented in human history. A growing body of evidence suggests sugar is causing not only widespread obesity but also an epidemic of metabolic disease amongst otherwise normal-weight and physically-fit adults and children. Sugar Coated, debuted at this spring’s DOXA and Hot Docs festivals, ponders just how sweet our favourite taste may not be.
