Over 2 billion people eat insects for protein. The Gateway Bug explores how changing our agricultural system can feed humanity in an uncertain age.
Following the rise and dramatic fall of edible insect start-ups in the United States, this film exposes America’s disconnect with food as a climate catastrophe, uncovering daily habits individuals can shift to fix the broken food system, one meal at a time.
