One hundred pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross is at the end of his rope.
In the mirror he saw a 310-pound man whose gut was bigger than a beach ball and a path laid out before him that wouldn’t end well. With one foot already in the grave, the other wasn’t far behind. Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead is an inspiring film that chronicles Joe’s personal mission to regain his health.
With doctors and conventional medicines unable to help long term, Joe turns to the only option left: His body’s ability to heal itself. He trades in the junk food and hits the road with juicer and generator in tow, vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for the next 60 days. Across 3,000 miles Joe has one goal in mind: To get off his pills and get healthy.
While talking to more than 500 Americans about food, health and longevity, it’s at a truck stop in Arizona where Joe meets a truck driver who suffers from the same rare condition. Phil Staples is morbidly obese weighing in at 429 pounds. He is a cheeseburger away from a heart attack. As Joe is recovering his health, Phil begins his own epic journey to get well.
What emerges is nothing short of amazing: An inspiring tale of healing and human connection. Part road trip, part self-help manifesto, Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead defies the traditional documentary format to present an unconventional and uplifting story of two men from different worlds who each realize that the only person who can save them is themselves.
Let thy Food be thy Medicine and thy Medicine be thy Food. Hippocrates
That is the message from the founding father of modern medicine echoed in this controversial documentary film from Producer-Directors James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch.
Due to nutritionally-depleted foods, chemical additives and our tendency to rely upon pharmaceutical drugs to treat what’s wrong with our malnourished bodies, it’s no wonder that modern society is getting sicker. Food Matters uncovers the trillion dollar worldwide “sickness industry” and gives people some scientifically verifiable solutions for overcoming illness naturally.
Food, Inc. lifts the veil on our nation’s food industry, exposing how our nation’s food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment.
The movie also reveals surprising and often shocking truths about what we eat, how it’s produced and who we have become as a nation.
According to producer Elise Pearlstein, the take-away message from Food, Inc.: “I hope people will want to be more engaged in the process of eating and shopping for food. We have learned that there are a lot of different fronts to fight on this one, and people can see what most resonates with them. Maybe it’s really just ‘voting with their forks’ – eating less meat, buying different food, buying from companies they feel good about, going to farmers markets.
If you know someone with heart disease — who doesn’t? — this will probably be the most valuable film they will ever watch, and from authorities with impeccable credentials. And, if you eat to prevent heart disease, you will also prevent the other major diseases that are plaguing Western nations.
You will also hear from Dr. Heidrich who, after surgery, treated her breast cancer without chemotherapy, radiation or any other conventional treatments by following The Rave Diet. This DVD is used in wellness clinics throughout the world to motivate people to change their diets and restore their health.
The Future of Food has been a key tool in the American and international anti-GMO grassroots activist movements and played widely in the environmental and activist circuits since its release in 2004.
The film is widely acknowledged for its role in educating voters and the subsequent success of passing Measure H in Mendocino County, Calif., one of the first local initiatives in America to ban the planting of GMO crops.
Genetic engineering of food crops is as controversial today as ever, as many of the large agricultural corporations that use this technology position themselves as the answer to the world food crisis and further consolidate the seed supply. The Future of Food continues to be a key tool used by activists and educators who call for increased attention to this issue.
Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days is an independent documentary that chronicles the lives of six Americans with diabetes who switch to a diet consisting entirely of vegan, organic, uncooked food in order to reverse disease without pharmaceutical medications.
The six are challenged to give up meat, dairy, sugar, alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, soda, junk food, fast food, processed food, packaged food, and even cooked food for 30 days. The film follows each participant’s remarkable journey and captures the medical, physical and emotional transformations brought on by this radical diet and lifestyle change.
We witness moments of struggle, support and hope as what is revealed, with startling clarity, is that diet can reverse disease and change lives.
The film highlights each of the six before they begin the program and we first meet them in their home environment with their families. Each participant speaks candidly about their struggle to manage their diabetes and how it has affected every aspect of their life, from work to home to their relationships.
Engrossing and eye-opening, KING CORN is a fun and crusading journey into the digestive tract of our fast-food nation where one ultra-industrial, pesticide-laden, heavily-subsidized commodity dominates the food pyramid from top to bottom: Corn.
Fueled by curiosity and a dash of naïveté, college buddies Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis return to their ancestral home of Greene, Iowa to figure out how a modest kernel conquered America.
With the help of some real farmers, oodles of fertilizer and government aid, and some genetically modified seeds, the friends manage to grow one acre of corn. Along the way, they unlock the hilarious absurdities and scary but hidden truths about America’s modern food system.
After 7,000 miles, and 25 hours of footage, Sweet Misery reveals one of the most pervasive, insidious forms of corporate negligence in the history of the industrial revolution.
The toxic long-term effects of aspartame are often dismissed as a “hoax” by the sweetener industry and countless other websites. The real footwork, however, unravels something less comforting than a mere “hoax.”
“Sweet Misery” is the title of a documentary released by Sound and Fury in June 2004. Their primary investigation includes interviews with doctors, lawyers, people who have had health problems which they associate with aspartame usage, advocates, and many others.
“Aspartame is inherently, markedly and uniquely unstable in aqueous media” is a quote from the congressional record in 1985, and yet it was approved for use in soft drinks and other beverages. So what happened?
Is there credible evidence if you look beyond the smokescreen of corporate medicine? The primary research and interviews have been quite disturbing.
While aspartame was the single focus in Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World, Sweet Remedy demonstrates that a corrupt flagship regulatory agency has given birth to numerous toxins in our food supply. This is no accident.
A close examination of the U.S. corporate power structure demonstrates that neurotoxic foods resulting in a dumber populace is simply a matter of policy. In the U.S. and through each nation within its global corporate grasp, maintaining a healthy mind and body is an act of civil disobedience.
Ultimately, healing has become the path of resistance for informed individuals improving their health. A host of M.D.s and natural health practitioners are interviewed to gain the clearest possible perspective for a path to recovery.
Perhaps the sweetest remedy this film offers is the hope provided by witnessing a variety of groups as they withstand the confusion, casualties and obstacles involved with taking control of their food and their health.
This award-winning film is two hours long, in two parts, and covers a comprehensive range of topics. The 2nd Edition has subtitles in Spanish, French, German, Portuguese and English.
Part 1, Curing Cancer, deals with the failings of conventional cancer treatments and shows how conventional medicine wildly — and deceptively — exaggerates the benefits of treatments, while minimizing the risks. There is also a section on the “Cancer Industry” which explains the history behind cancer treatments, the suppression of alternative treatments and why chemotherapy, radiation and surgery are the only treatments available to mainstream medicine.
Part 2, Healing Cancer, shows how cancer can be successfully healed with dietary treatments and natural supplementation. It also discusses supplementation and why attitude is important in reversing not only cancer, but any disease.
Burzynski is the story of a medical doctor and Ph.D. biochemist named Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski who won the largest and possibly the most convoluted and intriguing legal battle against the FDA in American history.
His victorious battles with the U.S. government were centered on Dr. Burzynski’s belief in and commitment to his gene-targeted cancer medicines he discovered in the 1970s called Antineoplastons, which have currently completed Phase II FDA-supervised clinical trials in 2009 and began the final phase of testing in 2010.
Burzynski takes the audience through the treacherous, yet victorious, 14-year journey both Dr. Burzynski and his patients have had to endure in order to obtain FDA-approved clinical trials of Antineoplastons.
What was revealed a few years after Dr. Burzynski won his freedom helps to paint a more coherent picture regarding the true motivation of the U.S. government’s relentless prosecution.
A cure for cancer and most other chronic and degenerative diseases has been available since 1928. The therapy was developed by Max Gerson, M.D., a German Jewish physician, hailed by Nobel Laureate Albert Schweitzer as, “the most brilliant medical genius ever.”
This film examines many of the elements of the Gerson Therapy, and explains how and why it has been healing the most advanced cases of cancer for over 75 years using nature’s own materials and processes.
Nine Gerson patients relate stories of recovery from the most deadly cancers (liver, ovarian, pancreatic) up to 19 years ago. Their inspiring testimonies are powerful evidence of the therapy’s effectiveness. Charlotte Gerson also describes her lifelong efforts to keep the therapy alive despite powerful opposition.
Garrett is a 15-year old boy living in the Alaskan wilderness with a menagerie of orphaned animals. Growing up close to nature has given him a deep understanding of nutritional needs required by diet-sensitive animals on the reserve. Unfortunately, the untimely and tragic death of his mother propelled him into a downward spiral and he risked flunking out of school. This led to his father’s decision to home-school Garrett. His first assignment was to study a controversial book written over 50 years ago by Dr. Max Gerson.
Dr. Gerson found that diet could, and did, cure cancer. Gerson’s pioneering theories were controversial at the time (and even today), but Garrett took on the challenge of researching this amazing therapy, drawing the interest of his neighbors in the small Alaskan community. With the help of Dr. Gerson’s daughter, Charlotte Gerson, and grandson, Howard Straus, who gave him the ammunition needed to go in search for the truth – Garrett brought home a truth that would affect not only him, but his entire Alaskan village – all of whom wanted to know if these claims were true.
After a number of cancer patients, who were diagnosed as terminal, shared their stories and their medical records with Garrett, it became abundantly clear that, contrary to the disinformation campaign spear-headed by the multi-billion dollar medical and pharmaceutical industry, a cure for virtually all cancers and chronic diseases does exist – and has existed for over 80 years!
Garrett’s mission, now, is to tell the world.
Master filmmaker Steve Kroschel, intrigued by a stunning statement from his last documentary, sets out to find hard evidence of the effectiveness of the Gerson Therapy, a long-suppressed natural cancer cure.
His travels take him across both the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans, from upstate New York to San Diego to Alaska, from Japan and Holland to Spain and Mexico. In the end, he presents the testimony of patients, scientists, surgeons and nutritionists who testify to the effectiveness of the Gerson Therapy in curing cancer and other degenerative diseases, and show the hard scientific evidence to back up their claims.
Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock unravels the American obesity epidemic by interviewing experts nationwide and subjecting himself to a “McDonald’s only” diet for 30 consecutive days.
His Sundance award-winning feature is as entertaining as it is horrifying, as it dives into corporate responsibility, nutritional education, school lunch programs, and how we as a nation are eating ourselves to death.
Filmed up close and personal with three cameras in 2007, this is Howard Lyman, The Mad Cowboy, at his dynamic best in front of a live audience.
