First We Eat

Watch trailer

In First We Eat documentary filmmaker Suzanne Crocker turns the camera on herself and family of five in Yukon, Canada, as they embark on a project to only eat locally-grown food for one year. No grocery store food in the house. Is it possible to live off the land and remain healthy and happy?

Putting food sovereignty to the test in the far North of Canada - filmmaker Suzanne Crocker, living just 300 km from the Arctic Circle, removes absolutely all grocery store food from her house. For one year, she feeds her family of five only food that can be hunted, fished, gathered, grown or raised around Dawson City, Yukon. Add three skeptical teenagers, one reluctant husband, no salt, no caffeine, no sugar and -40 temperatures.


Suzanne Crocker (b. 1962) is a filmmaker from Dawson City, Yukon Canada. She often turns the camera on herself and her family as she takes them through some rather extreme adventures. She's made several documentaries in various formats. All The Time In The World (2014) won 22 Awards & translated into 12 languages. Her short film Time Lines was screened at TIFF 2011.
