We are delighted to be hosting the Scotland premiere of 'In Our Hands' — The inspiring story behind the blood, sweat and tears of the farmers who are outgrowing the industrial food system.
In 67 minutes, the film follows a group of different farmers and food producers over one year (2016), to observe their stories of success and the challenges they have faced.
This film was created by Landworkers' Alliance and Black Bark Films and is about the quiet revolution that's taking place in our food and farming right now in the UK.
The film captures the daunting Brexit moment, as the UK leaves the European Union and begins to redefine its farming politics for the first time since the Second World War. In Our Hands shows how we can ‘bring back life to the soil, a fair wage to the farmer and a flavour to the tomato’.
