Sugar Coated

.

Is sugar toxic ? For forty years, Big Sugar has been able to counter all threats to its multi-billion dollar empire. As obesity, diabetes, and heart disease rates continue to skyrocket, doctors are now treating the first generation of children suffering from fatty liver disease. We are sitting on a dietary time bomb.
The sugar industry is under siege again but today the critics have gotten smarter, bolder, and madder and science is catching up. SUGAR COATED is an urgent film about where we are now with sugar and how we got here.

Running Time: 85 min.

Press

  • MARION NESTLE AUTHOR OF SODA POLITICS
    "If you want to know how sugar politics really works, see this film!"
  • Peter Howell, TORONTO STAR
    We’re all taught to think of sugar as the most natural of sweet things, bringing smiles from cradle to grave. But it’s actually more poison than benefit, Michèle Hozer persuasively argues, in an exposé that gives sugar and its corporate pushers many lumps …Robert Kenner’s recent Merchants of Doubt …makes a good companion piece for Sugar Coated. After seeing this film, you might never eat a doughnut or drink orange juice again.
  • CINEMABLOGRAPHER
    Director Michèle Hozer gets the recipe just right in Sugar Coated as she whips up an intelligent argument with a dash of playful humour. This doc smartly articulates the dangers in consuming sugar in excess quantities, and audiences are likely to swallow this dose of what’s good for them given how succinctly and sweetly Hozer conveys the argument. …Don’t let the sweet tooth of Sugar Coated fool you: this is one sharp doc. Hozer tackles the health risks of sugar with a shrewd eye that looks at the industry from all angles.
  • Brendan Kelly, MONTREAL GAZETTE
    The great thing about this feature doc is its point-of-view filmmaking, a refreshing break from the bland TV-news approach. A couple of apologists for the big sugar companies are included, but the main thrust of almost every interview is to underline either the nefarious effects of over-consumption of sugar and/or the aggressive manoeuvres of the sugar titans to counter any negative reports about sugar.
  • Danita Steinberg, TORONTO FILM SCENE
    Sugar consumption continues to be a huge problem, so this documentary is extremely relevant and worth seeing …it is less fear mongering and more factual than most other documentaries like it, which is a refreshing way to tell the story …after watching this film, you’ll think twice about having a soda.
