As part of our Food & Climate Action Project, we are running a series of Food & Climate film clubs this winter! Join us for our first screening of the season.
The film will start at 18.30, please arrive and be seated before this time. Feel free to bring your own food and drink.
Stay after the film for a discussion over a delicious, vegan meal!
There will be a variety of veg seeds from Vital Seeds to swap with you… so bring your own and swap with us.
In Our Hands explores a quiet revolution that is transforming the way our food is produced and distributed. Our current industrial food system is a vast and wheezing giant that is only upheld by a stilted subsidy regime that pays out to landowners and leaves many farmers by the wayside.
But from the hedge-rows and by-roads, the fields and furrows can now be heard the stirring of change! Stories from the global South have inspired farmers and food workers in our snug little island, with the idea of food sovereignty and a global movement to take back control of the food system.
From the grazier reviving the art of pasture, to the grower erecting a poly-tunnel in the heart of East London or the farmer saving a handful of ancient grain, a new agricultural landscape is emerging. Here rural traditions meet modern innovations in a new food system that will bring back life to the soil, a fair wage to the farmer and a flavour to the tomato!
Throughout the tumultuous summer of the Brexit referendum the Landworkers’ Alliance joined forces with two film-makers, to unearth the farms and faces that are making this change happen.
We stand on the brink, the future is uncertain, but the seeds of a better food system are In Our Hands!
