After studying nutrition through the Global College of Natural Medicine in California, James and Laurentine realised that the health challenges within their own families were in fact a very real representation of what was happening the world over.  As they researched further into the health care industry, they felt compelled to share their findings. “What we learned throughout this journey was so astounding that we wanted to share it with others, and so Food Matters the documentary was born,” James explains.

The filmmakers have interviewed several world leaders in nutrition and natural healing who claim that not only are we harming our bodies with improper nutrition, but that the right kind of foods, supplements and detoxification can be used to treat chronic illnesses such as terminally diagnosed cancer.

James and Laurentine’s intention is to reiterate the ancient wisdom of Hippocrates, “let thy food be thy medicine”.
James and Laurentine distribute and promote their film Food Matters on line and through health food stores instead of more traditional methods of television broadcast and cinemas. This strategy has proved extremely successful with over 200,000 copies sold to date.

The film screening and an open discussion with film makers (and a Santos consultant) will be on at Mullumbimby Civic Hall TOMORROW (Thursday June 23rd), doors open at 6pm, film screens at 7pm.  Delicious, healthy food prepared by Santos will be on sale from 6pm at the event.

Tickets $12 / $10 Screenworks members are available from Santos, The Bookshop Mullumbimby, Mary Ryans Byron Bay and Screenworks.
