The Last New Wave - Interview with The Gateway Bug Director Johanna B. Kelly & Producer Cameron Marshad




The Melbourne Documentary Film Festival kicks off on July 9th and carries through to the 16th of July. Screening as part of the festival is The Gateway Bug, a documentary about the future - and that future is entomophagy... aka... eating bugs! Andrew interviewed director Johanna B. Kelly and producer Cameron Marshad about what went in to making a documentary about bugs, and what inspired them do cover this subject. The Gateway Bug was funded through Kickstarter, which Cameron discusses the ways he navigated through crowdfunding. This is a truly fascinating documentary in the line of That Sugar Film and The End of the Line - it'll make you look at the way you consume food in a different light, while also making you consider just how beneficial our insect friends are. 

The Gateway Bug screens on July 16th at 3:00pm. Tickets can be purchased here.

NO ALTERNATIVE review

Depression is often marked by sadness, despair, and hopelessness. The sense that things will not get better is something most of us pass through at different points in our lives. But depression is something more than that. It’s not just a temporary feeling, it’s a debilitating emotional state that you can’t simply pull yourself out of. The angry outbursts, irritability, and frustration that come along with depression can isolate individuals suffering from this condition and push them deeper into their own thoughts. Everyone needs to be heard and sometimes those who can’t express themselves in traditional forms find their voice in art.
Edvard Munch wrestled with agoraphobia and frequently had hallucinations, one of which inspired THE SCREAM, a painting so iconic that even the most casual art enthusiast is familiar with the piece.  Sylvia Plath took a more direct approach with THE BELL JAR and laid out the details of her depression with brutal honesty.
