+ Who is behind this film?
This film is the long-term project of independent journalist Sarah Mabrouk. She set out to write a critical magazine article about dubious alternative cancer treatment clinics in Tijuana, Mexico in 2010. After finding out that there are no studies or statistics about the most popular nutritional cancer treatments on offer there - neither from the proponents, nor from medical authorities like the NCI and ACS, she decided to follow six patients undergoing this type of treatment with a camera over several years to find out what happens. The final update on the patients in the film is seven years post diagnosis.
The film was privately funded and completed with the help of a successful public crowdfunding campaign. Absolutely no funding came from conventional or alternative medical institutions or companies. Funding from such entities was not accepted in a deliberate effort to maintain the independence and journalistic integrity of the film.

+ Where was The Food Cure filmed?
