Enjoy Celebrity Radio’s Morgan Spurlock INTERVIEW Super Size Me 2…
In the 15 years since SUPER SIZE ME, the fast-food industry has undergone a makeover. Today, chain restaurants tout food that’s “healthy,” “organic,” and “natural.”
Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock explores this new reality with an approach even more immersive and subversive than that used for his first film: he sets out to open his own chicken franchise.
We follow him every step of the way, from raising poultry and conjuring recipes to designing the brand and scouting a location. Spurlock brings his disarming humour to uncover the truths and lies behind this multibillion-dollar industry.
SUPER SIZE ME 2: HOLY CHICKEN! was nominated for the ‘People’s Choice Award’ at Toronto International Film Festival.
We caught up with Morgan for an exclusive LIFE STORY INTERVIEW…
Director Morgan Spurlock said: “When Super Size Me came out in 2004, it took off like a rocket and connected with audiences in ways I could never imagine, both in the US and around the world.
The film finally ignited in people a realization of personal responsibility and a desire to take control of their own lives.
The first film really told the story of our relationship to fast food. SUPER SIZE ME 2: HOLY CHICKEN! examines this from the corporate side, showing you the decisions that are made, the stories that are the spun, the corners that are cut and the lives that are impacted to get you, the consumer, what you believe to be the best food possible, at the most affordable price.
