Dark Side of the Chew

Chomp on this gum-dripping doc.

No one likes Googling, “How do I get gum off my shoe?” Or for that matter, “out of my hair?” It’s a problem that’s plagued millions for years gone by, but there’s a new documentary that reveals gummy hair isn’t the only problem you need worry about. The gobsmacking truth is that gum has a dark side, with a negative impact on the planet’s environment and, quite possibly, your health, according to the doc produced by Andrew Nisker and his Toronto crew at Take Action Films. The Dark Side of the Chew tackles a sticky topic you probably didn’t think about before and makes a good case for curbing gum intake (especially if you decide to watch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory immediately after).
