Worldwide kids are heavier than they should be. And unhealthy. Way Beyond Weight is an award-winning film that shares the Brazilian perspective, where one in every three children is overweight and 15% are obese. People are losing their traditional food culture and turning to fast and processed food, with shocking consequences. In this movie we hear directly from the children that are facing these health problems and their struggle, alongside families and experts, to live a healthy lifestyle.
Way Beyond Weight shows as part of a day of highlights from our Green Film Network festival partners. For more information about the network, visit greenfilmnet.org
