"Super Spek Me" to reveal perils of Czech pub food
The US documentary "Super Size Me" exposes American fast food culture as one of the sources of the population's obesity. Its director, Morgan Spurlock, lived on nothing but McDonald's food for an entire month. As a result he put on weight, his cholesterol shot up and doctors compared his liver to pate. The film has now reached Czech audiences and its release is accompanied by a similar experiment to the one the director of "Super Size Me" went through. A volunteer is going to eat only typical Czech pub food for a month and then reveal the results.
Zuzana Pudilova of art films distributor Aerofilms describes the volunteer.
"He is a well-built man between 45 and 50. He is almost 2 metres tall, he is not exactly thin but until now he has had quite a healthy lifestyle."
In a month's time we will see the result of the experiment. Iva Malkova says the change may not be as drastic as in the case of Morgan Spurlock, but in any case, it will be a big event. Zuzana Pudilova of Aerofilms again.
"The result will be presented to the public, most likely on March 8th in cinema Aero where Karel will eat his last sausage, if he indeed survives the experiment!"
