THE BIG ISSUE

A web documentary  by Olivia Colo and Samuel Bollendorff

Produced by Honkytonk Films

In 2015, 2,3 billion human beings will be overweight and 937 million will be obese.

In a world where we are putting on weight, too much, much too quickly, “ The big issue” wishes to explain without any Manichaeism, the origins of this real plague of modern societies.

Through a playful and interactive voyage across the United States and Canada, the European Parliament and Northern France, the web user will have to appeal to his critical thinking to forge an opinion on obesity, and on the patterns of behavior to be adopted before the planet turns size XXL.

    Le web doc devrait s’appeler web magazine, tant c’est une émanation du journalisme. Rien à voir avec le documentaire, c’est bien triste
