Join us for two special event screenings of That Sugar Film

THAT SUGAR FILM is one man’s journey to discover the bitter truth about sugar. Damon Gameau embarks on a unique experiment to document the effects of a high sugar diet on a healthy body, consuming only foods that are commonly perceived as ‘healthy’. Through this entertaining and informative journey, Damon highlights some of the issues that plague the sugar industry, and where sugar lurks on supermarket shelves. THAT SUGAR FILM will forever change the way you think about ‘healthy’ food.

In a major coup for the Sunshine Coast, Arthouse Cinema Nambour will host a special Q&A presentation with renowned author and real food advocate David Gillespie following the screening on Friday night.

David Gillespie is a recovering corporate lawyer and co-founder of several successful software companies. He is also the father of six young children (including one set of twins).

His first book, Sweet Poison, published in 2008 is widely credited with promoting the current Australian wave of anti-sugar sentiment.  In his subsequent book, Toxic Oil, he takes the arguments in Sweet Poison and extends them to the widespread use of vegetable oils in the modern diet.

Prices: Adults $14.00 / Concession / Full time Student $11.00 / Film Club Member & Child $9.00  / Special Tuesday $9 / Group 8+ $11
