This thoughtful new documentary follows a cast of charming and brave food adventurers from the Copenhagen-based Nordic Food Lab as they travel around the world to explore the vast and growing world of insect cuisine. Everything from revered termite queens and dessert-delicacy honey ants to venomous giant hornets and long-horned grasshoppers is on the menu in this beautifully shot film, which goes beyond the gross-out to raise unexpected and important questions about the future of our food culture.
