Mexican ant egg meatballs anyone? Danish pastries topped with crispy Japanese ants? This documentary explores the case that a plate full of maggots or thumb-sized grubs might one day make our mouths water. Since the UN recommended edible insects as a resource to combat world hunger, it would seem that insects are the new superfood. Even ‘the greatest restaurant in the world’ is investigating this new culinary vision. Will eating insects save our Earth?
‘Bugs is one of most compelling documentaries about food in the past few years.’ ★★★★
