Special Sneak Preview!

Over the last few years, since the UN recommended edible insects as a resource to combat world hunger, bugs have been heralded for their taste, low ecological impact, and nutritional content. Can insects solve the problem of global food security? This energetic, hugely entertaining documentary wants to answer that question. We follow a team from the Copenhagen-based Nordic Food Lab who have been traveling the world—Europe, Australia, Mexico, Kenya, Japan, and beyond—to learn how some of the two billion insect-eaters out there cook and enjoy this savory fare. Equal parts culinary documentary, political conversation-starter, and travelogue, the film sets out to unearth the role bugs will play in the future of agriculture and to break down the cultural barriers keeping them off our plates. A favorite at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival!
