The explosive documentary deals with the subject of food deserts and nutrition justice. Far From Healthy includes renowned experts in food, nutrition and public health as well as community members dealing with social and economic struggles while witnessing an environmentally based diet of foods that consists primarily of processed foods high in calories, sugars, salt, fat, and artificial ingredients. This documentary strives to explain the connection to poverty and obesity and asks the hard hitting question of whether urban residents are victims of a systemic injustice or willing participants in their own fatalities.
“Far From Healthy deals with the possibility that there was something profound in the world of health to explore here – something that could potentially open minds to new opportunities to address wellness– we seized the opportunity to take on this project. For every person we interviewed, we found hundreds of others wanting to share their experience. Our goal is to initiate our audience on the same journey – to make them aware that this is happening right round them right now and to inspire them to rethink their approach to health care and personal food responsibility,”
