 "THAT SUGAR FILM" is one man’s journey to discover the bitter truth about sugar. Damon Gameau embarks on a unique experiment to document the effects of a high sugar diet on a healthy body, consuming only foods that are commonly perceived as ‘healthy’. Through this entertaining and informative journey, Damon highlights some of the issues that plague the sugar industry, and where sugar lurks on supermarket shelves. "THAT SUGAR FILM" will forever change the way you think about ‘healthy’ food. The film features guest cameos from the likes of Stephen Fry, Isabel Lucas and Brenton Thwaites, interviews with Gary Taubes, Michael Moss and Dr Kimber Stanhope, plus a rocking soundtrack including Depeche Mode, Peter Gabriel and Florence and the Machine.
