About Docs4Schools

With the generous support of the Rei Foundation, Docs4Schools offers free in-theatre screenings during Doc Edge Festival in May 2016 for school students: year 5-13.

The documentaries cover a wide range of themes and have been carefully selected to support the New Zealand school curriculum. Documentaries inspire students to learn more about how people live around the world, and gain empathy for the issues they face. Education resource packs, including curriculum links for each film are available.

Please note that Docs4Schools screenings are available for schools only!

For more information, please contact Jane Cotty, Docs4Schools Manager at

For forty years, Big Sugar has deflected all threats to its multi-billion dollar empire, while sweetening the world’s food supply. As obesity, diabetes, and heart disease rates skyrocket, doctors are now treating the first generation of children suffering from fatty liver disease. The sugar industry is once again under siege. They dodged the bullet once. Will they do it again?
