About the movie

Insects as food is a hot topic. The UN says edible insects can combat world hunger. Their taste and nutritional content is heralded by cooks, gastronomes and health scientists, and their low ecological impact by environmentalists. Are insects the new superfood that will fix problems of global food security? Chefs and researches from Copenhagen-based Nordic Food Lab, Josh Evans, Ben Reade and Roberto Flore, have been travelling the world to hear some of the two billion people who already eat insects. 'BUGS' follows them as they forage, farm, cook and taste insects with communities in Europe, Australia, Mexico, Kenya, Japan and beyond.
