Barrie Film Festival

ON NOW AT BFF VIRTUAL CINEMA

FIRST WE EAT

Directed by Suzanne Crocker
2020, Documentary, 101 min., G (Canada)

When filmmaker Suzanne Crocker (director of 2015 Hot Docs audience favourite All the Time in the World) suggests that her family spend a year eating only locally sourced food, her husband and three teenagers are skeptical. What complicates this experiment is that the family lives in a remote Yukon town, less than 300 kilometres south of the Arctic Circle—not exactly an easy place to access fresh-grown food all year round. First We Eat follows Suzanne and her family as they hunt, forage, fish, grow and raise their own food, struggling along the way to create a meal plan with variety and flavour. Filmed primarily by the director herself, this challenging look at food security and sustainability is also an intimate study of a family in the midst of a tough but rewarding experiment.

Winner of the TOP FIVE AUDIENCE AWARD at Hot Docs 2020
