Living 300 km from the Arctic Circle, filmmaker Suzanne Crocker bans all grocery store food from her house for one year. Add three skeptical teenagers and one reluctant husband. Ultimately the story becomes a celebration of community and the surprising bounty of food that even a tiny community in the far North can provide.

FIRST WE EAT qualified for Best Documentary at the 2021 Academy Awards and received an Audience Choice Award at Hot Docs Film Festival.
