5. HUNGRY FOR CHANGE
Hungry For Change exposes shocking secrets the diet, weight loss, and food industry don't want you to know about. Deceptive strategies designed to keep you craving more and more. Could the foods we are eating actually be keeping us stuck in the diet trap?

7. THE TROUBLE WITH BREAD
Did you know that in the U.S., the 'gluten-free' industry is worth a staggering $10.5 billion? There is so much more to learn about wheat, and how it has changed in just the last couple of generations. In this film, Ms. Beidelman journeys from farm to mill to the table, on a quest for answers about gluten intolerance and a hunt for the perfect loaf, one she can eat without getting sick. Along the way, she makes some unexpected discoveries about crucial changes to the wheat itself and how it is processed and fermented. Let's just say that bread as you know it, is not what you think.
8. FOOD MATTERS
Food Matters is a hard-hitting, fast-paced look at our current state of health. Despite the billions of dollars of funding and research into new so-called cures, we continue to suffer from a raft of chronic ills and everyday maladies. Patching up an over-toxic and over-indulgent population with a host of toxic therapies and nutrient-sparse foods is definitely not helping the situation.
9. THE HEALING EFFECT
The Healing Effect movie is a documentary about the healing power of food that features best-selling authors and experts from around the world like John Robbins, Joel Fuhrman, Daphne Miller, David Wolfe, Charlotte Gerson, John McDougall, Philip McCluskey, John Bagnulo, and many more. The film follows the story of a police officer in the gritty city of Lowell, Massachusetts, who has radically changed his diet and inspired his community. The movie explores the power of prevention, why bad genes are not your destiny, food and lifestyle secrets from the healthiest, longest-lived people on the planet, as well as simple steps to get started right now in changing your life, one bite at a time!
H.O.P.E. is a life-changing documentary, uncovering and revealing the effects of our typical Western diet, high in animal-based foods. It contrasts the limited interests of the pharmaceutical and agricultural industry with the all-encompassing interests of living beings on this planet, and with the power of responsible consumer action. H.O.P.E. is an urgent call to action to all of us to commit to a change towards sustainability and safeguarding our living environment. It has a clear message: by changing our eating habits, we can change the world!
