The Gateway Bug

A documentary about feeding humanity in an uncertain age.




Dir:Johanna B. Kelly



Over 2 billion people eat insects for protein.

Eco foodie documentary, The Gateway Bug (84mins) 2018, follows the rise and fall of edible insect start-ups in America, exposing the West’s disconnect with food as climate catastrophe, while offering daily habits we can change, to fix our broken food system, one meal at a time. Starring TV chef Andrew Zimmern and interviews with over 50 specialists from the UN, USDA and Climate Foundation to commercial cricket farmers.

The Gateway Bug documents shifting landscapes of regulation, diet and agriculture from the front lines of climate-affected communities.
