Date: Wednesday 29 November 2023
Location: The Curzon Cinema, Oxford Westgate
This event will include a screening of El Susto, followed by a panel discussion and a social event.
“As eye-opening as it is galvanizing, El Susto uncovers the powerful beverage industry’s outsized influence across the country, its access driven by deep political ties, aggressive marketing campaigns and gross abuse of power. Featuring families devastated by Type 2 Diabetes for generations; healthcare workers embedded in affected communities; leading public health advocates; and even a former Coca-cola marketing executive, El Susto charts Big Soda’s insidious infiltration into Mexican society as courageous public health advocates, medical professionals and community members fight for the well-being of a nation.“ https://elsustomovie.com/
