Insects as food is a hot topic. Particularly since the UN recommended edible insects as a resource to combat world hunger, they have been heralded for their taste by cooks, for their low ecological impact by environmentalists and for their nutritional content by health scientists. For the past three years a team from Copenhagen-based Nordic Food Lab have been travelling to learn what some of the two billion people who already eat insects have to say. During their journey as they encounter everything from revered termite queens and desert-delicacy honey ants, while some hard questions start to emerge: are insects a mirror that reflects our broken food systems, or the silver bullet that will fix them?"¨A meeting with the director will be held after the showing.
