AS PART OF FAIR FOOD WEEK 2014, RANDWICK CITY COUNCIL INVITES YOU TO THE SCREENING OF A FEW SHORT DOCUMENTARIES…
‘Orange Tree Blues’ plus ‘Sourced’
Fair Food Week and we would like to invite you to join us at the Randwick Sustainability Hub for a screening of Orange Tree Blues by Australian Food Sovereinty Alliance and Sourced, by the Youth Food Movement Australia, a short documentary film about the GOOD FOOD movement.
About these short documentaries…
Orange Tree Blues is a powerful short film telling the story of Mick Audinno, from Leeton, in the Riverina District of NSW. Movingly and compassionately shot by act film-maker Simon Cunich with colleague Dan Gwynn, this film documents an all-too-familiar and tragic story in contemporary Australian agriculture: the uprooting of healthy fruit trees because growers can’t compete with cheaper imports. But it also shows glimpses of a positive food future, based around the warmth and connections of farmers’ markets.
Sourced delves into the story of food in our own backyard. Sourced reveals the potential of small-scale, local agriculture to strengthen food security and build resilient urban communities. At Youth Food Movement, we believe we must challenge the status quo in order to support a more sustainable food system by rethinking how we produce, distribute and consume food. Sourced maps out how consumers can be part of these innovative solutions, and the positive effect we can have on the food system through conscious food consumption. Sourced is a collaborative project by Youth Food Movement Australia and Digital Storytellers.
Before the screening of the film, you’re welcome to join us for an BBQ, salad and fruit from local growers (we’ll be preparing it and cleaning up — collaborative activity — this is a commuity event after all — it’s the collaoration that makes it fun). This give us the chance to chat, socialise and meet new friends. During the food preparation time there will be a tables for swapping of books, and seeds and plant swap with Permaculture East and Transition Randwick
After the screening of film there’s be a facilitated discussion for you to participate in.
