LSS: Film 'Local Food Roots' - Alec Duffie

Description: Film 'Local Food Roots'.

With Alec Duffie

The film explores some central themes that have emerged over the last two decades.

Followed by discussion

"Food really matters, how you eat, how you shop, crucially affects how the world is." Sheila Dillon, The Food Programme, BBC Radio 4

From the first organic box schemes to feeding cities and local food culture, this film explores the diversity, motivations, challenges and opportunities that have led to the emergence of a UK local food movement since 1990.

Alec is a Leicestershire smallholder, local food activist and a director of f3 (who made the film). The film was planned to be a celebration of the local food movement over the last twenty years or so and to encourage conversations about what might be possible in our local food economies. Alec will introduce the film and, after the showing, give a brief update and invite a conversation on the potential for action in Leicestershire.
