SIGHT AND LIFE visited Pohnpei in April 2006 to film a documen- tary about nutrition problems in Micronesia and the efforts underway for alleviating these problems. Their visit was coordinated by the Island Food Community of Pohnpei. Klaus Kraemer, Head of SIGHT AND LIFE, and Thomas Breisach, Deputy Head of the DSM Nutritional Products Communications Section, made up the SIGHT AND LIFE team. They were in Pohnpei from 21 to 27 April, 2006. Ulla Lohmann, filmmaker, and her camera assistant Markus Hain were engaged as consultants and were in Pohnpei from 10 to 27 April, 2006. The purpose of the film is to produce a documentary about global nutrition problems, including mi- cronutrient deficiencies and nutrition- and lifestyle-related chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Dr. Kraemer pointed out that Pohnpei is an example of a country having a double burden of malnutrition: the problem of micronutrient deficiencies such as vitamin A deficiency, and the problem of overweight and chronic diseases.
