Insects as food is a hot topic. Particularly over the last few years, since the UN recommended edible insects as a resource to combat world hunger.

For the past three years a team from Copenhagen-based Nordic Food Lab made up of chefs and researchers Josh Evans, Ben Reade and Roberto Flore have been travelling the world to hear what some of the two billion people who already eat insects have to say. Throughout their experiences some hard questions start to emerge.

Kaisa’s enchanted forest (2016 / 85 min / Finnish)
Director: Katja Gauriloff
A documentary fairytale with enchanting animations set in the land of the Skolt Sami people near the polar circle. The narrator is Kaisa, a charismatic storyteller and singer. The filmmaker Katja Gauriloff, her great-granddaughter, approaches her life from the perspective of a man who was initially a stranger: Robert Crottet, the Swiss writer who followed an urgent call he heard in a fever dream and went to Lapland in the 1930s, where he felt, as he wrote in his book “The Enchanted Forest”, “transported to a time when the separation between man and animal and the nature that surrounds us all was not as marked as in our day”. In Kaisa, who virtually adopted him, he found an enlightened representative of this Golden Age.
Over the years the two became soulmates. And like the Brothers Grimm, who produced their children’s and household tales in the 19th century by listening to oral traditions, Crottet recorded the myths and legends Kaisa told him and was increasingly filled and transformed by them. In the 1950s he also became the international ambassador of the nomadic Skolt Sami people while they were driven further and further north and forced to fight for survival.

And then there’s Smola, where their mother grew up and where summer vacations are spent. We watch them grow up, and their dreams and expectations being shaped. Markus loves soccer, and wants to be a professional. Lukas is more of a philosopher asking questions about the world, about himself, and what it’s all about. Sometimes, what they want and need is the direct opposite of being a loving son or brother. The documentary is filmed by the boys’ mother over an eight year period. This is her attempt to capture their childhood and brotherhood, and their discovery of life, while looking back at her own family history.
