King Covid describes how humans and viruses have interacted since the beginning of time. Now he wants credit for stopping humans before they destroy our shared habitat. 

 

FIRST WE EAT

VIEWING REGION: Canada

Putting food security to the test in the far North of Canada. Filmmaker Suzanne Crocker, living just 300 km from the Arctic Circle, removes absolutely all grocery store food from her house. For one year, she feeds her family of five, only food that can be hunted, fished gathered, grown or raised around Dawson City, Yukon. Add three skeptical teenagers, one reluctant husband, no salt, no caffeine, no sugar, and -40 temperatures.  Ultimately the story becomes a celebration of community and the surprising bounty of food that even a tiny community in the far North can provide.
