As we look to explore how we can use collective film watching at home as a means to gather, share ideas and connect we’ve been delving through the vastness of the internet to source interesting and relevant stories for now, on film.
This month we will be watching together In Our Hands: Seeding Change, a feature length documentary exploring food a quiet revolution that is transforming the way our food is produced and distributed.
The film will be made available here, on this page at 8pm on Friday, 10thJuly – please just re-fresh the page at the time and it will appear.
We’d also love if you could stay for a discussion about the film, and some of the important themes arising from it, which will take place using Crowdcast also on this page, at 9.15pm on Friday, 10thJuly. Please register in advance here: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/1lxq2xzq
There will be a live chat in the run up to and during the film, so let us know that you are watching and any questions you have!
We are sharing a publicly available film so we are unable to support with any quality or technical issues but hope that by keeping Reel to Real free at the moment we can allow as many people to participate as would like to!

About the Film
In Our Hands explores a quiet revolution that is transforming the way our food is produced and distributed here in Britain. This documentary from Black Bark Films and commissioned by the Landworkers’ Alliance was created in the wake of Brexit, and explores farmers and food growers across Britain that are looking to create more sustainable food systems.
In 2020, as the pandemic saw panic buying in supermarkets and empty shelves across the country, and increasing numbers of people have taken to having a go at ‘growing their own’ during the lockdown – this film holds it’s relevance – how can we investigate and better understand our food systems, to create fairer, more sustainable and localised systems of positive change?
The Landworkers’ Alliance is an organisation of people making their livelihoods from producing food, fuel and fibre using sustainable methods of production. They campaign for the rights of small producers and a better food system.
