It's the world’s second most common form of litter. It’s invisible to most. Yet it lurks everywhere (including the bottoms of tables, desks and shoes). How did we become so addicted to chewing gum and how is our consumption of trillions of sticks a year impacting our health and our planet? Join award-winning, eco-activist filmmaker Andrew Nisker – Garbage! (Sundance), Chemerical (Netflix), Orange Witness (Documentary) – in a cinematic first as he travels our planet and speaks to gobs of manufacturers, activists and scientists to unravel the entertaining, yet shocking truth behind our obsession with a seemingly innocuous product that is gumming up more than just our environment. Full of unexpected twists and bubble-bursting surprises, the Dark Side Of The Chew will give you a lot to chomp on if you’re hooked on this seemingly innocent, age-old habit.
