Over 2 billion people on Earth rely on eating insects for protein. Following the rise and dramatic fall of edible insect start-ups in the United States, The Gateway Bug exposes America’s disconnect with food as climate catastrophe, uncovering daily habits that can fix the broken food system, one meal at a time. From the front lines of climate-affected communities to commercial cricket farms in the Rust Belt and bug eating festivals, the film ignites social change through education and empowerment.

Directed by Johanna B. Kelly, USA 84 min, West Coast Premiere.
