The Gateway Bug Film Screening
Over 2 billion people on earth eat insects for protein. The Gateway Bug is an award-winning documentary exploring how changing daily eating habits can feed humanity in an uncertain age.
Following the rise and dramatic fall of edible insect start-ups in America, this film exposes America’s disconnect with food as climate catastrophe, uncovering daily habits individuals can change to fix our broken food system.
From behind the scenes of commercial cricket farms, as yet unseen technology from Silicon Valley and bug eating festivals, to interviews with over 50 professionals from the UN, USDA and NRDC, to celebrity chef Andrew Zimmern and Shark Tank star Pat Crowley.
Recent studies show a global shift to an ento/plant-based diet would reduce mortality 10% and cut up to 70% of Greenhouse Gas emissions by 2050, The Gateway Bug shares the key towards a brighter future from an intimate insider’s journey.
This outstanding documentary by Aussie-born director Johanna Kelly has featured at a number of film festivals globally, including the Transitions Film Festival here in Melbourne. Less Meat Less Heat are very excited to share the power of this film to ignite social change!
