Film Screening: In Our Hands - Seeding Change
Thursday 18th January at 7.30pm
Join us at e5 Bakehouse on 18th January for a screening of In Our Hands; a film by The Land Workers Alliance and BlackBark Films.
Filmed throughout 2016, this documentary tells the inspiring story behind the blood, sweat and tears of the British farmers seizing the Brexit moment to outgrow the industrial food system.
The film will be introduced by one of the producers from BlackBark Films, and guest speaker from Grown In Totnes, one of the initiatives featured in the film.
More about the film:
Food and farming is in crisis. In just over a decade we’ve lost more than 33,000 farms from our countryside, and alongside this, bad diet is now causing more health problems than smoking! The fundamental link between people, food and the very land we stand on is being broken.
Yet it need not be this way. There is a growing movement of farmers and food workers who are creating vibrant farms, living soils, thriving food markets and a fairer food system for all. At the heart of all change lies a story, and In Our Hands is the story of a new kind of farm, a new kind of food and a new kind of society. This film has been created as an open source tool in order to debunk the myth of the industrial food system, and be a resource for farmers and activists in building a better world.
Tickets are £5 which includes a hearty bowl of organic, veggie soup and plenty of fresh sourdough.
Drinks will be available to purchase from the bar from 7pm.
Talks and screening will start at 7.30pm.
Address: e5 Millhouse, Arch 396 Mentmore Terrace, Hackney. E8 3PH.
