This past September, you might remember our Joyous Night At The Movies event in Toronto where Joyous Health partnered with The Superfood Chain to preview this incredible documentary! I have been working with the team at Fathom Film Group (who are the people responsible for bringing The Superfood Chain documentary to life) for the past year because I strongly believe the message they are sharing needs to get out to the masses.

It's why we brought Ann Shinn, the filmmaker behind The Superfood Documentary, to talk more about this on the Joyous Health podcast today, and more specifically, the impact that our superfood shopping habits have on the world and people around us. 

Ann is an award-winning Director and Producer known for beautiful, compelling documentary films, series, and innovative interactive projects. Her films and series have aired on CBC, TVO, HBO, ABC, CBC The Documentary Channel, Discovery Channel, HGTV, History Channel, SLICE.
