THAT SUGAR FILM is one man's journey to discover the bitter truth about sugar. Damon Gameau embarks on a unique 60 day experiment to document the effects of a  low-fat, high sugar diet on a healthy body, consuming only foods that are commonly perceived as 'healthy'. (Damon only eats the perceived 'healthy' foods that are in fact laden with hidden sugars like low fat yoghurt, muesli bars, juices and cereals.) Through this entertaining and informative journey, Damon highlights some of the issues that plague the sugar industry, and where sugar lurks on supermarket shelves.

"By far the largest shock of this whole process was not how quickly I developed fatty
liver disease, heart disease risks, 10cm of extra weight around my waist, the doubling
of my insulin output or how my moods and concentration were affected, but how
quickly it all disappeared once I returned to my previous diet."

In the months ahead, will provide opportunities to screen the film at schools, make available a study guide they have developed that incorporates interactive activities using the film and soon to be released 'That Sugar Book' as tools, as well as Damon's tips and methods to explain how he got healthy again after the sugar eating experiment.

THAT SUGAR FILM is coming to Austrailan cinemas in March 2015. It will change the way you think about ‘healthy’ food. For more details visit:

Angela Sun's journey of discovery to one of the most remote places on Earth, Midway Atoll, to uncover the truth behind the mystery of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Along the way she encounters scientists, industry, legislators and activists who shed light on what our society's vast consumption of disposable plastic is doing to our oceans, and what it may be doing to our health.

After years of wading through red tape, Sun finally makes it to the famed "Great Pacific Garbage Patch" and puts herself on the front lines as she crashes a convention to secretly interview the people behind plastics manufacturing, and gets her blood tested for BPA after deliberate exposure via a store receipt. In the seven years it took to make the film, Sun met the best of environmental preservationists and the worst of corporations hell-bent on keeping plastic production alive. The result is a film that moves the grassroots and has the audience thinking twice before grabbing a straw to go with a beverage.

Residents of a community in South Asheville fight for clean drinking water as the contaminated soil of an old manufacturing plant continues leaking carcinogens into their water more than twenty years after the threat was first reported to the Environmental Protection Agency. Residents were drinking high levels of contaminated water for years and not knowing what was making them sick.

When the site finally became designed a Superfund site and was ranked among the worst contaminated sites in the nation, the community expected a cleanup and safe water, but instead the site seemed to enter a perpetual state of tests and evaluation with little, to no action.

Emmy award winning writer and director Katie Damien is producer. Award winning editor and filmmaker Jaime Byrd is editing. My Toxic Backyard has been funded in part by crowd sourcing through Kickstarter.

Antibiotics were first massed-produced in the 1940s. Their ability to fight and kill bacteria revolutionized medicine and had profound effects on everything from agriculture to the Armed Forces. After only 70-years, however, these miracle drugs are failing. Just one kind of antibiotic resistant infection kills more people each year than emphysema, HIV/AIDS, Parkinson’s disease, and homicide combined, and there are now dozens of these so-called Superbugs each with its own challenges and costs. How did this happen? Using microscopic footage, harrowing personal stories, and expert insights RESISTANCE clarifies the problem of antibiotic resistance, how we got to this point, and what we can do to turn the tide.

Because of the geographical location of the island, tons of trash from South East Asia washes up on their
beaches. The amount of marine debris increased 10 times from 1998 to 2005. The people of Ikema are committed to keeping the beaches clean and free from marine debris. They do this to prevent trash from going back into the ocean after storms, and to preserve tourism. But most importantly, they do this because of their spiritual commitment to the island.

Unacceptable Levels examines the results of the chemical revolution of the 1940s through the eyes of affable filmmaker Ed Brown, a father seeking to understand the world in which he and his wife are raising their children. To create this debut documentary, one man and his camera traveled extensively to find and interview top minds in the fields of science, advocacy, and law. Weaving their testimonies into a compelling narrative, Brown presents us with the story of how the chemical revolution brought us to where we are, and of where, if we're not vigilant, it may take us. Pre-order here:
