Movie Info

The Nordic Food Lab (an offshoot of the acclaimed Copenhagen restaurant Noma) sends a chef and a food-science researcher around the world to investigate cultures and establishments that serve meals containing insects. Along the way, the pair explore the possibility that these dishes will become more commonplace in the future in order to feed a growing global population. Directed by Andreas Johnsen, BUGS made its world premiere at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival.

  • If a diet that includes maggots, locusts, termites and buffalo worms doesn't entirely repel you, then the documentary "Bugs" might prove an intriguing look at the potential future of protein-rich nutrition sources for an expanding world.

  • It's gently comic, a touch naïve, and somewhat moving: These idealists are ready to fight to keep creepy-crawlies farm to table.
