Our Health Film Series: Forks Over Knives
Directed by Lee Fulkerson
1 hr 36 mins, PG
Forks Over Knives examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods. The major storyline in the film traces the personal journeys of a pair of pioneering yet under-appreciated researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn.
The idea of food as medicine is put to the test. Throughout the film, cameras follow "reality patients" who have chronic conditions from heart disease to diabetes. Doctors teach these patients how to adopt a whole-food, plant-based diet as the primary approach to treat their ailmentswhile the challenges and triumphs of their journeys are revealed.
Forks Over Knives utilizes state of the art 3-D graphics and rare archival footage. The film features leading experts on health, examines the question "why we don't know," and tackles the issue of diet and disease in a way that will have people talking for years.
Forks Over Knives was filmed all over the United States, and in Canada and China.
