As screenings of Zev Robinson’s 28 minute documentary “Real Bread Bakers” (trailer – https://vimeo.com/411720338) have had to be postponed indefinitely, it was today made available online.
Six interviewees, including Andrew Whitley of Scotland The Bread, John Castley of Wild Hearth Bakery, Marie McCormack of Bridging the Gap – High Rise Bakers and Rachel Smillie of The Glad Cafe, look at how bread-making, sourdough, local food, nutrition and a sense of community are all closely intertwined, and traces the real connections between rural, wheat growing areas and urban community projects in deprived neighbourhoods.
£1 from the view fee of £2.30 will go to the The Real Bread Campaign, which promotes bread that is ‘better for us, better for our communities and better for the planet’. There is the option to pay more than this to support the film and help promote its content.
Our Chairman Andrew Whitley co-founded the Real Bread Campaign, and the two organisations share a common vision. You can support both the Real Bread Campaign and Scotland The Bread simply by watching and sharing this inspiring documentary: https://gumroad.com/l/psrqH
