Synopsis

BUGS revolves around three young men – Josh Evans, Ben Reade and Roberto Flore. Combining curiosity with expertise, their project takes them in search of tastes and techniques which might be new to them, but aren’t to the people they learn from. The trio make up the main research team of Nordic Food Lab’s edible insect project Discerning Taste: Deliciousness as an Argument for Entomophagy. Andreas Johnsen, the director of BUGS, follows the trio around the world as they explore local food cultures and food systems – from foraging and farming to cooking and of course eating insects. Produced by Rosforth and Danish Documentary, the film has an inquisitive approach as the team encounters and documents the contradictions and controversies around entomophagy. We also join Nordic Food Lab in their experiments with culinary practices and taste – in a two-way process of learning from others around the world while trying to push boundaries themselves. BUGS offers no easy solutions. Instead it's a questioning, open-minded exploration into the world of edible insects.
