FIRST WE EAT

STREAMING FROM 6TH - 12TH NOVEMBER (UK & IRELAND)

Putting food sovereignty 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 on the traditional territory of the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in. Add three sceptical 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.

Age Recommendation: 15+ *Contains moderate language throughout and scenes that may upset younger audiences.

Available to watch between 6th - 12th November.
