As screenings of Zev Robinson’s 28 minute documentary “Real Bread Bakers” (trailer - https://vimeo.com/411720338) have had to be postponed indefinitely, it is now being made available online.
Six interviewees, including Andrew Whitley of Scotland the Bread and John Castley of Wild Hearth Bakery, look at how breadmaking, 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.
Personal stories, history and breadmaking practices are intricately interwoven with shots of leading bakers expertly plying their craft, mouth-watering Wild Hearth Bakery products, archival material and more to give a comprehensive view of the many wonderful aspects of breadmaking.

£1.00 goes to the Real Bread Campaign https://www.sustainweb.org/realbread which promotes bread that is “better for us, better for our communities and better for the planet”. Should the viewer wish to pay a bit more, it will be split between the Real Bread Campaign and the filmmaker to enable him to continue to make documentaries about food, sustainability and social issues.
