Collaborations May 8 Science on Screen


Dir. Andreas Johnsen USA 74 min

2016 Kino Lorber

Part travelogue, part nature documentary, part food porn, and part political treatise, Bugs improbably takes viewers from repulsion to curiosity (and maybe even hunger!). With global food shortages an almost certainty in the future, forward-thinking chefs, environmentalists, and food scientists are turning toward an unexpected — and for many a deeply unappetizing — source of protein: insects. While consuming the creepy-crawly creatures we spend most of our lives avoiding might seem impossible, Bugs artfully and thoughtfully provides a perfect entry point to insect cuisine.
