Our Daily Bread

Full Unemployment Cinema's free showings of interesting radical films continues next Sunday November 29th with Nikolaus Geyrhalter's Our daily bread. It's a documtary from 2005 about global food production, about which Geryhalter says: 'I’m fascinated by zones and areas people normally don’t see... the production of food is also part of a closed system that people have extremely vague ideas about. The images used in ads, where butter’s churned and a little farm’s shown with a variety of animals, have nothing to do with the place our food actually comes from. There’s a kind of alienation with regard to the creation of our food and these kinds of labor, and breaking through it is necessary'.

Other films scheduled include:

December 20th: WAGES OF FEAR, Henri Georges Clouzot , 1953 (131m)

January 31st: BANGLADESH LABOUR REVOLTS. Films from the recent Garment workers strikes and riots
