In Our Hands 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.

This feature-length documentary profiles the emergence of a new generation of farmers who are outgrowing the industrial food system with a vision for post-Brexit food production that redefines our relationship with food. We stand on the brink, the future is uncertain, but the seeds of a better food system are In Our Hands!

Screening as part of the We Feed the World programme at the Bargehouse, an inspiring programme of talks, workshops and films from farmers and communities from the food sovereignty movement, international activists, photographers and business leaders.
