ShineBox Media Productions announced this week that the their new documentary Killer at Large will be ready for festivals and release in early 2008.

Killer at Large examines the startling details of the American obesity epidemic and why this issue has crossed from public health crisis to a national security issue. When asked in the film what the most pressing issue is in America today, former Surgeon General Richard Carmona responded, "Obesity. Because obesity is a terror within. It is destroying our society from within and unless we do something about it, the magnitude of the dilemma will dwarf 9/11 or any other terrorist event that you can point out...Where will our soldiers, sailors and airmen come from? Where will our police and firemen come from if the youngsters today are on a trajectory that says that they will be obese?"

While the issue of obesity has simmered to the forefront of the mainstream media's attention, Killer at Large picks up where the reality shows leave off, moving far beyond individual struggles and extreme diets to deeply dissect this epic struggle that predates human history. With many experts in the field of childhood obesity declaring that "this may be the first generation of children to have a shorter life expectancy than that of their parents," Killer at Large not only provides an intricate and sobering perspective on one of the most pressing health issues of our time, but also serves as a call to arms for concerned parents, school districts, and entire communities who have empowered themselves to take a stand and reverse this deadly trend which is set to cripple our entire nation's health care system and bankrupt our economy within the next twenty years.

Sadly, the solutions to these problems that have been coming from the government and the industries who share culpability in this problem range from the absurd (industry should regulate itself) to the obvious (consumers should simply be exercising more.) Killer at Large details why this approach not only doesn't help, but is actually making the problem worse.

Killer at Large has been in production for over a year and is directed by Steven Greenstreet. In 2005, Greenstreet directed the award-winning documentary "This Divided State" which chronicled the furor over Utah Valley State College's decision to bring Michael Moore to speak on campus in the days before the divisive 2004 presidential election. Greenstreet and his producing partners Bryan Young and Elias Pate have spent the last year preparing the new film for an early 2008 release to festivals and theatres.

According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, obesity and its related illnesses are estimated to kill over 100,000 Americans a year and cost taxpayers $117 billion in 2002 alone.

The film features interviews and footage of numerous public figures discussing both the politics, causes and effects of obesity including former President Bill Clinton, consumer advocate Ralph Nader, filmmaker Neil LaBute, Senator Tom Harkin, Senator Sam Brownback, Governor Mike Huckabee and a number of bestselling authors such as Michael Pollan, Chef Ann Cooper and Dr. Brian Wansink among many others. For more information about the project and links to more obesity information, please visit the website.

Killer at Large has been submitted to a number of notable film festivals, including Sundance and Slamdance. Director Steven Greenstreet and Producers Bryan Young and Elias Pate are available for interviews, media appearances and other press related functions in relation to the Obesity epidemic and independent filmmaking.
