About this event

FIRST WE EAT

[Dir: Suzanne Crocker, Canada, 2020, 101 min.]

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 temperatures of 40° below zero.

Putting the concept of food sovereignty to the test, filmmaker Suzanne Crocker – whose first feature documentary All the Time in the World was the most popular film at the 2015 Salt Spring Film Festival – removes absolutely all grocery store food from her house. For one full year she feeds her family of five only what can be hunted, fished, gathered, grown or raised around Dawson City, Yukon, on the traditional territory of the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in, just 300 km from the Arctic Circle.

Whether you are concerned with sustainability, the nutritional value of your food, your carbon footprint or food costs and accessibility, food sovereignty is a topic of interest for many. By focusing attention on where food comes from and valuing the land and the people who produce it, First We Eat is ultimately a celebration of community and the surprising bounty of food that even a tiny Northern community can provide. After all, "First we eat, then we do everything else."

Celebrating the ingenuity, resourcefulness and knowledge of Northern Canadians and their relationship to the land, First We Eat was long-listed for Best Documentary at the 2021 Academy Awards and has won multiple Audience Awards at film festivals around the world, including the Rogers Audience Choice Award for Best Canadian Documentary at Toronto’s Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival.

This film series is produced by the Salt Spring Film Festival, a non profit society on Salt Spring Island.
