Scientology Network’s DOCUMENTARY SHOWCASE, the weekly series providing a platform for Independent filmmakers to air films on important social, cultural and environmental issues, presents the documentary The Kids Menu, a look at the solutions to reverse the alarming growth of children’s health issues through their food choices, on 8 July, 2022, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
Recent studies show the pandemic has only exacerbated the epidemic of childhood obesity and its related health dangers. Reversing this trend is more crucial than ever.
Directed by Kurt Engfehr, The Kids Menu follows filmmaker Joe Cross as he works to educate children, parents and school officials with life-changing information on the healthful benefits of a fresh, whole foods diet.
In an interview with Scientology Network for DOCUMENTARY SHOWCASE, Cross reflected on using the power of film to inform audiences:
“So the mission and the job for people like me as a filmmaker … is to get the stories out there and get that message far and wide of inspiration and just to show some basic things that you can do that can make a difference in your life.”
With a worldwide audience, Documentary Showcase offers Independent filmmakers an opportunity to showcase films to affect positive change in the world.
DOCUMENTARY SHOWCASE airs Fridays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Scientology Network.
Award-winning editor and director Kurt Engfehr is based in New York. The Kids Menu director was the senior editor on Michael Moore’s Emmy-nominated show The Awful Truth and later won the American Cinema Editors Award for best editing for the documentary Bowling for Columbine. Engfehr wrote and co-directed Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, which has been viewed by more than 20 million people worldwide and has attracted an online community of more than a million followers.
