Based on the bestseller of the same title by journalist Michael Pollan, this documentary explores how modern diet can be damaging, and how there is a confusion between what is healthy and what’s not.

If you don’t know Michael Pollan, it’s time you do. And if you already know him from his publications, you can now see him in this documentary based on his book In Defense of Food. The film nurtures itself from the knowledge and (successful) career of Pollan, who kept writing bestsellers about food, eating, and cooking. Why do all these marvelous things need a defense? If you don’t know, you should see this film, which is heavy on fundamental information, amazing data, and urgent alerts. If you do know and you already read phrases like “avoid any food with hooks like light, non-fat, or low-fat,” “avoid any food you see advertised on TV,” or “if it’s called the same in every language, it’s not food,” then you know why you have to see this film.
