In 2004, filmmaker Morgan Spurlock made us rethink fast food in the insightful and controversial docu-drama, Super Size Me. Now more than 15 years later, he’s back to make us think again in a follow-up that tackles the world of fast food fried chicken.
In the years since ‘Super Size Me’, the fast-food industry has undergone a makeover. Today, chain restaurants tout food that’s “healthy,” “organic,” and “natural.” Spurlock now explores this new reality with an approach even more immersive and subversive than that used for his first film: he sets out to open his own chicken franchise.
Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken follows him every step of the way, from raising poultry and conjuring recipes to designing the brand and scouting a location. Spurlock brings his disarming humour to uncover the truths and lies behind this multibillion-dollar industry.
