"Joining Supersize Me and King Corn as one of the decade's very best food documentaries, Feeding Frenzy covers important and, as of yet, unchartered territory as it turns a keen and critical eye on the marketing practices of the food industry. A must-see!"
Justin Lewis | Head of the Cardiff School of Journalism, Media, and Cultural Studies, Cardiff University
"Powerful, important, and damning. Zeroing in on the corporate practices of the multibillion-dollar food industry, this film adds a fresh and essential perspective to current debates about corporate power, food, and health. Watch this film and show it to your students!"
Erica Scharrer | Chair of Communication, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
Over the past few decades, Americans and Europeans have been drowning in a surplus of cheap, processed food.
The result has been a widening global epidemic of obesity-related health problems.
Feeding Frenzy is the first documentary of its kind to focus squarely on the pivotal role marketing has played in the spread of this epidemic.
Picking up where a number of recent high-profile films about the food industry have left off, Feeding Frenzy zeroes in on the sophisticated tactics the global industry now employs to keep unhealthy processed food flowing into the global marketplace despite growing awareness about its dangers.
Features industry analysts, health experts, and advertising scholars, including Marion Nestle, Kelly Brownell, Sut Jhally, Brian Wansink, and Michele Simon.
