NOTES FROM THE FILMMAKERS
Got the Facts on Milk? is a comical feature documentary that questions the much-publicized health benefits of milk.
Filmmaker Shira Lane takes a road trip across America to get the truth on the unchallenged perceptions of milk. Addressing myth, truth, and all in between, the film becomes a humorous yet shocking exposition that provokes serious thought about this everyday staple. Join the milk documentary crew on a journey to the arbiter of all things health-related, the USDA in Washington DC. The mission is to get factual answers to common milk beliefs.
Peeking into milking farms, advertising campaigns, lactose intolerance, cancer, hormones, heart disease, diabetes, milk derivatives, dairy-funded school programs, and the empowered multi-billion dollar dairy industry, this milk documentary will have you looking at milk in a new light.

Prepare to be surprised by the responses from top-notch scientists, researchers, farmers, and everyday people in this inquisitive feature documentary into a product that is embedded into the very foundation of our culture, nutrition, and lives. You will hear powerful information that may change your life forever.
