Sundance award-winning film When Two Worlds Collide looks at clashes between powerful, opposing Peruvian leaders over tracts of the Amazon in Peru.

Bugs: The Film asks whether eating insects could help "save the world" by providing people with a new source of food.

In the film, director Andreas Johnson follows a team from Copenhagen-based Nordic Food Lab as they forage, farm, cook and taste insects around the globe.
