Dark Side of the Chew-Screening License

from 89.00

It’s the world’s second most common form of litter. It’s invisible to most. Yet it lurks everywhere (including the bottoms of tables, desks and shoes). How did we become so addicted to chewing gum and how is our consumption of trillions of sticks a year impacting our health and our planet? Join award-winning, eco-activist filmmaker Andrew Nisker – Garbage! (Sundance), Chemerical (Netflix), Orange Witness (Documentary) – in a cinematic first as he travels our planet and speaks to gobs of manufacturers, activists and scientists to unravel the entertaining, yet shocking truth behind our obsession with a seemingly innocuous product that is gumming up more than just our environment. Full of unexpected twists and bubble-bursting surprises, the Dark Side Of The Chew will give you a lot to chomp on if you’re hooked on this seemingly innocent, age-old habit.

What The Critics Thought:

“I like the fact that it was a very funny film about a very serious subject. And I think Andrew was able to put it in a kind of context – the whole question of chewing gum – in a way that seemed funny on the one hand, but gradually got darker and darker, like the title of the film. He’s a wonderful filmmaker, and I like the fact that he put himself in as the protagonist – we knew where we were all the time because of who Andrew is, and he can play the common man very well, although I think he’s uncommonly good at what he does.”
– Marc Glassman, POV Magazine

“Nisker has a modesty about him that’s endearing. It reinforces the inspiring notion that any average Joe if they put their mind and actions to it, like Nisker, can make a difference.”
