There will be a screening of the latest film by the Land Workers Alliance 'In Our Hands' - followed by a discussion - Friday 27th April 2018 in Manchester.
The film looks at the industrial nature of the UK food system and explores how people are resisting this and transforming how our food is produced and distributed.
Feeding Greater Manchester is very excited to be screening the latest film by the Land Workers Alliance 'In Our Hands, which 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. 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.
The screening takes place at the 3 Minute Theatre in Afflecks Palace - Afflecks Arcade, 35-39 Oldham Street, Manchester M1 1JG
There will be a discussion afterwards with local small scale farmers from across Greater Manchester.
