Last week, our documentary film BUGS, directed by Andreas Johnsen, had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York.
There were four screenings, some great Q&A sessions, many press interviews, and two pop-ups—the first with escamol ice cream served on the High Line, the other with escamol tacos served at Miscelanea, a self-described Mexican general store in the East Village. Both were made possible by José Carlos Redon and his brother Alessandro, who helped us out with our fieldwork in Mexico in March 2014 and flew up to NYC for the premiere—with 10kg of escamoles no less!
Many thanks to Andreas, Peter, and everyone at Danish Documentary for making it a thrilling and successful week.
The film will be having other continental and national premieres over the coming months, so stay tuned for news here and over on bugsfeed.com, the website for the film. Until then, here is the official trailer.
