I’m not sure if I can even explain to you how excited I am about filmmaker Michal Siewierski’s new documentary, Food Choices. I’m a food movie addict. I usually (always) cry during those moments in food films where someone’s life gets transformed by good food.
And now I’m one of those people whose transformation is being featured. Which made me cry x 2. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d get to share my story in such a big way. And next to some pretty big names! Dr. McDougall, Joe Cross (Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead), and Karen Calabrese are all in the film. Not to mention OPP contributors Ashlee Piper and my bud De’Mar Hamilton.
Michal is an incredible human being whose own life has been transformed by his food choices. I have gotten to know him over the filming, and I can tell you he’s the real deal. Kind, thoughtful, and genuinely wanting to help change peoples’ lives with this film. So far he’s funded the film by himself, and he could really use your help with the rest. He has an Indiegogo campaign where even $1 can help. For all the Kickstarters, 5Ks, and Girl Scouts I’ve helped fund in my day…I have no shame asking for help on this one on behalf of Michal and his project.
This movie is gonna be BIG. And not just because of its baller premiere party or Netflix like-ability, but because it’s going to help people think about their health in a new way and encourage some pretty big change.
Check out the trailer and let me know what you think! And then share the trailer with a friend.
You can see more about the film on the Food Choices website.
See you at that baller premiere – I’ll be the one in the big hat.
