Suzanne Crocker’s ode to the pleasures and challenges of sustainable eating will surely delight all the viewers who connected so strongly with the doctor turned director’s ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD, her People’s Choice Award winner at KCFF 2015. Crocker’s latest documents her family’s efforts to spend a year only eating the food they could procure in and around their home in Dawson City. The resulting film highlights the wider issues around food sovereignty and sustainability affecting people and families far from the Yukon landscapes that are so vividly captured here. Crocker’s admirers can expect to pick up some useful cooking and dining tips, too.
