- 1 hr 32 min
Fed Up is a 92-minute documentary film from 2014 that focuses on the rising obesity rate within the United States. It goes on to cite the vast quantity of sugar in the American diet as a core problem, claiming that the lobbying power of "Big Sugar" serves as an effective method by which to prevent the establishment of policies and initiatives that would work against their profitable agenda. Since the federal government established its first dietary guidelines back in the 1990s, evidence points to children growing up to have shorter and shorter lives. Fed Up is written, and directed by Stephanie Soechtig. The documentary was produced by six individuals, including Soechtig and journalist Katie Couric; Couric also serves as the narrator of the documentary. Fed Up is distributed by RADiUS-TWC, a division of The Weinstein Company. After debuting at the Sundance Film Festival, to mostly positive reviews, the film was picked up for distribution five months later.
