The Science in the Cinema film series is organized by the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Alberta. All of the film screenings in the series are free of charge to attend (they also provide free popcorn).

The October film screening in this series is the documentary Fed Up . Fed Up is a 2014 American documentary film directed, written and produced by Stephanie Soechtig. The film focuses on the causes of obesity in the US, presenting evidence showing that the large quantities of sugar in processed foods are an overlooked root of the problem.

You can also watch a trailer for the film.

Please meet me inside the Garneau Theatre at 6:15 PM, outside the doors to the main auditorium. Please arrive promptly - once everyone arrives we'll find seats together inside the auditorium. Based on prior Science in the Cinema events that I have attended, I would expect the film screening to begin right at 6:30 and that the theatre will be relatively full, so if you arrive late please find your own seat inside the auditorium and let me know afterwards (by text/e-mail) that you made it to the event.

The film is listed as 92 minutes in length and will likely end just after 8:00. A short Q&A will follow the film with Arya M. Sharma, MD/PhD, FRCPC, Professor of Medicine and AHS Chair in Obesity Research and Management at the University of Alberta.
