DANISH FILM FESTIVAL

The festival this year features documentaries about design, covering architecture, modern art, and food sustainability.

In Bugs (PG13, 76 minutes, above), a team of researchers and chefs travel the world examining cultural attitudes towards insects, a source of protein that many in the developed world are repelled by, but which might be the solution to a host of environmental problems.
