Michal Siewierski, the award-winning director of “Food Choices,” is exposing the truth behind diet culture with the new documentary “Diet Fiction.”
With a global launch scheduled for January 1st, 2019, the “ground-breaking” film will explore the question “what is making us fat?,” delving into issues of food addictions, weight loss fads, poverty, corporate wealth, marketing lies, and manipulation.
According to the film’s website, it “follows the audacious filmmaker in his exciting journey into the controversial world of weight loss and dieting, as he uncovers several shocking facts and confronts common misconceptions, and misleading information propagated by the industry over the last several decades.”
Searching for answers “in a world of conflicting information and a global obesity pandemic,” “Diet Fiction” will ultimately expose audiences to “new disruptive ideas and science-based evidence that could potentially lead to long-term sustainable weight loss and improved health.”
The documentary will also feature some of the biggest names in plant-based nutrition, including the founder of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, Dr. Neal Barnard, and “How Not to Die” author Dr. Michael Greger.
