So far, we’re impressed with the three years of research and the wide variety of expert voices who chime in at the screening we saw. The documentary takes a long hard look at environmental factors contributing to obesity — our country’s food production and food industry for one, as well as food-marketing to kids, and the over-availability of cheap processed foods.
Overall, the Weight of the Nation aims to highlight a national epidemic which it says threatens the fate not only of overweight individuals but the country itself.
We’re eager to know what you think! And hope you’ll be glued to the screen along with us starting TONIGHT, May 14 (Parts I & II) and tomorrow, May 15 (Parts III and IV) on HBO. If you don’t subscribe to HBO, you can watch online starting May 14 at 8pm EST for free!
