Directed by Andreas Johnsen

With global food shortages on the horizon, forward-thinking chefs, environmentalists and food scientists are turning toward an unexpected source of protein: insects. Bugs is an artful and thoughtful new documentary that provides a perfect entry point to insect cuisine. For three years, a cast of charming and brave food adventurers from the Nordic Food Lab traveled the world—from Europe to Australia, Mexico, Kenya, Japan and beyond—to learn what some of the two billion people who already eat insects had to say. Filmmaker Andreas Johnsen followed them as they foraged, farmed, cooked and tasted everything from revered termite queens and desert-delicacy honey ants to venomous giant hornets and long-horned grasshoppers. Throughout the team’s experiences, some hard questions started to emerge. If industrially produced insects become the norm, will they be as delicious and as beneficial as the ones in diverse, resilient ecosystems and cuisines around the world? And who will actually benefit as edible insects are scaled up? Equal parts travelogue, nature documentary, food porn and political treatise, Bugs is a beautifully shot film that makes a convincing argument for the inherent flavor of insects and raises unexpected and important questions about the future of our food culture along the way.


DVD Extras Include:

Includes the 8 episode television series on a separate disc

“Hugely entertaining. Somewhere between Jiro Dreams of Sushi and Food, Inc., at the intersection of culinary adventure and social justice.”

“Lively and thoughtful. Though it might initially look like a wacky foodie adventure show, Bugs has a conscience.”

“Fun and illuminating. Andreas Johnsen’s globetrotting documentary provides much food for thought.”
