The U.S. premiere of the documentary film Carb-Loaded: A Culture Dying to Eat will take place on September 27 at 7:30pm at The Ridgefield Playhouse.
The film explores the origins of the skyrocketing diabetes and obesity crisis in the U.S. and will shred any misconceptions about who is at risk and why. The film features world-renowned medical experts David L. Katz, M.D., David Perlmutter, M.D., Andreas Eenfeldt, M.D., Yoni Freedhoff, M.D., Timothy Noakes, M.D., and Brian Wansink, Ph.D. as well as noted authors Gary Taubes, Mark Sisson, Jonathan Bailor and Marion Nestle. This fast-paced film includes interviews, animation sequences, graphics and on-location footage. The film’s content will help viewers gain knowledge necessary to take control of one’s health and tackle the obesity epidemic head on.
A post-screening Q&A with Lathe Poland, the Connecticut-based filmmaker, will be followed by a reception. Poland will answer questions about making the movie, launching a successful crowd-funding campaign, and lessons learned during filming.
