The first trailer for the new documentary Bite Size has been released online. Directed by Corbin Billings, the film takes an intimate look at America’s childhood obesity epidemic by following the lives of four kids from diverse backgrounds who are fighting for their health. Our country’s struggle with obesity is no secret, and clearly many of these problems are rooted in childhood, so this is prime subject matter for a deep-diving documentary. This film in particular appears to focus primarily on the impact of childhood obesity at the personal level, bringing a degree of empathy to the proceedings by showing how being overweight impacts these specific kids.
