FOOR, FIRE AND FILM

BY GATEHOUSE PRIMARY SCHOOL

Did things used to be better or do we look at

 

A group of ten children have been out foraging. Bramble crumble, roasted acorns are all cooked on the fire pit which they built, with a tasty nettle on the side! They’ve been talking about dislikes and likes and why they think being closely connected to the food they eat might be important.

HOW GOOD IS YOUR FOOD?

BY THE PRINCES TRUST FRASERBURGH

This film focuses on the distance that is often between us and the food we eat.  Food and food production is a major part of the local economy, in a place where butchers still have their own livestock and fishmongers buy direct from the boats and the local markets.  The film looks particularly at the contrasts between pre-packed food and the fresh locally sourced products available in local small businesses, and asks the question, how good is your food?

 

 

This film was made with the Aberdeenshire creative team, Chris Lee, Graeme Roger & Dave Martin.

MEET THE BAKERS

BY GARVALD BAKERY

We are a big team, a busy team, a team who take time for each other and the work    we do. We work hard, and enjoy the bread we make, organic and artisan. We all have our own jobs to do, and the heart of our bakery beats with an anarchic rhythm.  Laughter rings out as we bake. Real food made by real people, we challenge you to find better bread, better bakers, or better banter!

 

This film was made with the Edinburgh ICEAH team, Caro Donald, Ruth Barrie & Gareth Griffiths.

ALONE TOGETHER

BY THIRD STAGE

Alone Together explores the social aspects of sharing food and good company. This is sharply juxtaposed against the isolation often experienced by older people who are living alone following the loss of a partner and the way that that isolation changes the experience and function of eating.  Alone Together is a celebration of new friendships between older people as they come together, to be alone together.

 

This film was made with the Aberdeenshire creative team, Chris Lee, Graeme Roger & Dave Martin.

AGE IS BUT A NUMBER

BY THE LET’S COOK GROUP AT

THE CATSTRAND

This group of older people have been reminiscing about how they got food in the past...local shops, farms or the house pig. It is more difficult now: local shops have gone; some cannot drive any more; some have lost the taste for food...But if there is only one of you left, why bother?

 

This film was made with the Dumfries and Galloway creative team, Anne Errington, Drew Johnstone & John Dinning.

WHERE DOES FOOD TAKE YOU?

CYRENIANS COMMUNITY FARM

We are all individuals, we are a community... From all around the world, the paths that led us here to this farm are different.  What brought you here?

Our memories and stories are our own and unique... Come, and share with us.... then ask yourself: Where does food take you...?

 

This film was made with the Edinburgh creative team, Caro Donald, Ruth Barrie & Gareth Griffiths.
