Feature Documentary – GTFOMilk
Got the facts on Milk, also known as the Milk Documentary is a feature documentary released in 2011 that questions the conventional wisdom of milk and dairy products. The film was in the making for for six years and finally released after first time director, producer Shira Lane raised $54,743 on Kickstarter, the crowd funded platform. During it’s festival run, the film won a few awards. We are most proud of the audience award, because to us that is what really matters.
‘Got the facts on Milk?’ is a comical feature documentary that questions the much publicized health benefits of milk. Film maker Shira Lane takes a road-trip across America to get the truth on the unchallenged perceptions of milk. Addressing myth, truth and all in between, the film becomes a humorous yet shocking exposition that provokes serious thought about this everyday staple. Join Shira and friends on a journey to the arbiter of all things health related, the USDA in Washington DC, on their mission to get factual answers to common milk beliefs. We peek into milking farms, advertising campaigns, lactose intolerance, cancer, hormones, heart disease, diabetes, milk derivatives, dairy funded school programs and the empowered multi-billion dollar dairy industry.
