Bug Farm

Four distinct women in Central Florida form a bond over crickets, superworms, and roaches on an insect farm in the small town of LaBelle. The farm serves as the background to this character-led documentary focused on community members who’ve come to insect farming with disparate motivations--including economic opportunity, reimagining the future of food, and the love and caretaking of the bugs themselves.
