Plot Synopsis

FOOD EXPOSED WITH NELUFAR HEDAYAT is a one-hour docuseries that follows journalist Nelufar Hedayat, as she joins celebrity activists to uncover the shocking truths behind the water we drink and the food we eat. Nel examines the origin stories of our favorite ingredients and the regulations (or lack thereof) that drive our global food chain. It's a big business shaped by our appetites in a very literal sense. Trekking over 175,000 miles as part of the investigation, Nel tackles the subject matter first hand--dumpster diving in New York's Greenwich Village to illustrate the scale of food waste; traveling to the Artic Circle's Global Seed Vault to explore why traditional crops are being abandoned in favor of GMOs; visiting an Indian tribe nestled below California's iconic Mount Shasta where water diversion schemes are threatening people's very way of life; and sees residents near Central America's largest rubbish dump as they are forced to scavenge food in order to survive. In West Africa, Nel heads out with Whale Wars activists to see how locals are priced out of their own food by those operating outside the law; she meets with local US farmers who can no longer compete in a dairy industry where best practices includes dumping 43 million pounds of fluid milk in manure pits and rivers in 2016; she travels to the Hudson Valley where a power plant's environmental impact has residents concerned and fighting back; and in North Carolina, Nel looks at the state's growing hog population - where animals are forced to live in filthy and often times disease-ridden conditions and investigates how these businesses are impacting both the environment and the local community. Throughout her journey, Nel is joined by outspoken celebrity activists including Nicole Richie, James Cromwell, Jordana Brewster, Moby, Dominic Monaghan, Amy Smart, and Jeremy Irons as they voice their concerns about corruption, environmental destruction and collusion between governments and big business.
