The Walking Revolution, a Documentary Film
The Powerful Untold Story of Walking Revealed in New Documentary Film
The Walking Revolution , a documentary film released today by Every Body Walk!, explores how the simple act of putting one foot in front of the other has significant health and environmental benefits. Powered by Kaiser Permanente, Every Body Walk! is a campaign and collaborative effort aimed to encourage the American public to walk (or roll, for those who are unable to walk), on a regular basis to improve their health and have fun in the process.
“For too many people, much of the day is spent sitting in the car, at the desk or on the couch, which has serious health implications,” said Raymond J. Baxter, PhD, Kaiser Permanente senior vice president, Community Benefit, Research and Health Policy. “The film is sure to encourage people to get back on their feet, walking whenever and wherever they can – at work, at school, and in the community, all while getting involved in making their communities more walkable overall.”
The Walking Revolution is a 30-minute documentary that details the health benefits of walking, what makes communities walkable, and how walking and walkability supports a healthier environment, strong local economies, and a vibrant community life. The film tackles:
- The impact of inactivity
- Eliminating walking from our culture
- The evolution of man and walking
- Walking to better health
- Building walkable communities
This documentary illustrates inspiring, personal experiences that help expand the way people think about the culture of walking and physical activity. The film builds on rich content that supports the topic of walking, including an Every Body Walk! public service announcement , featuring the cast of the West Wing and produced by online comedy platform Funny or Die. The Walking Revolution is available at www.everybodywalk.org/documentary . The trailer for the film can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xldUi3Y_3as .
