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.
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’.

Following the screening, we will have a panel Q&A, including the film-makers (TBC) as well as Russell Carrington, Director of the Pasture for Life Association, and some other small-scale producers from Scotland. The line-up will be confirmed in early March.
The venue has been generously provided by the RGBE community team at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. Doors are at 6.00pm with the screening starting promptly at 6:30 pm.
(Please make sure to use the back gate on Inverleith Place as the main Botanic entrances will be closed from 5 pm.)
The evening will include a veggie dish, bread and drinks and there is a suggested donation of £6 for the evening. (This is to cover travel expenses of the filmmakers, with any additional money raised to be donated to the Landworkers’ Alliance.)
