Cabin Fever: First We Eat

Sun, Feb 21 / 12 pm
Free to view!
Directed by Suzanne Crocker
2020, Canada, 103 min

Followed by alive Q&A with director Suzanne Crocker, and Kate Crocker.

What happens when an ordinary family, living just south of the Arctic Circle, bans all grocery store food from their house for one year? Add three skeptical teenagers, one reluctant husband, no salt, no caffeine, no sugar and -40° temperatures. 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. First We Eat celebrates the ingenuity, resourcefulness and knowledge of Northern Canadians and our relationship to the land through the food that we hunt, fish, gather, grow and raise in the North.

*Winner of a Rogers Audience Choice Award for Top 5 Canadian Docs
*Top 20 Audience Favourites out of 140 films world wide

Reviews

Inspirational! Suzanne Crocker’s amazing experiment shows that even in the far north with strong individual, family and community effort, local food can feed us year round.
