THEY’RE TRYING TO KILL US

“They’re Trying To Kill Us” is the follow-up feature length documentary to the award-winning film What The Health, focusing on food (in)justice told through the lens of Hip Hop and urban culture, produced by Keegan Kuhn (Cowspiracy, What The Health) and John Lewis (Badass Vegan, Vegan Smart).

Hip Hop influences global culture more than any other art form in human history. What Hip Hop artist say, wear, drive, drink and eat influences the purchases of millions of people around the world. As more and more influential Hip Hop artists adopt a food conscious lifestyle, it has the potential to radically shift the world they speak to. Their global influence has a real possibility of combatting chronic disease, minimizing climate change, reducing healthcare costs, ending starvation and promoting compassion.

The aim of the film is to encourage critical thought about justice by highlighting Hip Hop artists and activist who speak about injustice in all its forms. The film addresses food access and food deserts, nutritional and environmental racism, diet related diseases, racial disparities of disease, government corruption, animal cruelty, climate change and ultimately how the influence of Hip Hop will save the world.

 

UPDATES

 

Audiences journey with co-director John Lewis as he crosses the country seeking answers to why Americans of Color suffer from disproportionately higher rates of chronic disease than their European American counterparts, while examining the intersections of food, disease, race, poverty, institutional racism and government corruption.

Through interviews with cultural influencers, doctors, researchers, politicians, attorneys, professional athletes, activists and experts in the field of food justice, John begins to unravel a story of collusion that has kept millions of Americans sick, while the industries responsible make billions of dollars.

The film follows John as the protagonist and narrator in the documentary because of his unique experience being adopted at birth from his drug addicted birth mother, growing up as an overweight kid in the violence of Ferguson, to becoming a prominent health and wellness advocate promoting compassion.
