Description

This is not your average culinary documentary! Eating insects seems alien to many of us in the west, but they may soon be coming to a table near you. The UN estimates that insects will become a part of global diets in order to keep up with the food demand of an ever-increasing population. This eye-opening film follows three gastronomic researchers as they are introduced to delicious local delicacies, traditional harvesting practices and new entrepreneurs hoping to get ahead in this growing market. With an open mind and playful sensibility, this bug-eating travelogue is a fresh look at what sustainable food could look like in our rapidly-changing world.

Critical praise:
