  • Learning to Forget
  • In China more people are on death row than the rest of the world combined. The children of the convicts are most often left alone, stigmatized and living in the streets. Some of the abandoned kids are picked up by an orphanage founded by a former prison guard that the children call Grandma Zhang. Here they learn to live a life without parents and prepare for a world outside where they have to prove the misconceptions about them wrong. We learn to understand the climate and the political issues of the Chinese system through Grandma Zhang, but the main stories of loss, shame, and hope are told through the children.

  • Will eating insects save our earth? A gastronomic adventure with Nordic Food Lab by Andreas Johnsen

    Insects as food is a hot topic. Particularly over the last few years, since the UN recommended edible insects as a resource to combat world hunger, they have been heralded for their taste by cooks and gastronomes, for their low ecological impact by environmentalists and for their nutritional content by public health scientists. It would seem that insects are the new superfood that will fix all our problems of global food security.
