Breadmakers at the Heartland Film Society

Print

After months of travelling the world’s film festival circuit Breadmakers will be screened closer to home at the Heartland Film Society’s Autumn Scottish Film Weekend in Aberfeldy. The screening will take place on Saturday 25th October 2008 at Dewar's Distillery, Aberfeldy. The audience vote for their preferred film and the winner receives the Palme Dewar award with an appropriate prize.

Heartland Film Society (HFS) was formed to enable the showing of films on a big screen in an informal and friendly atmosphere. In 2004, HFS won the British Federation of Film Societies Best New Film Society award. The judges made special mention of the novel and unique method (the bean-o-meter) that HFS uses to evaluate the success of each film shown. Not only that but it received commendation for the programme notes issued for each screening.

HFS is run as a self-funding venture – fees cover only the cost of putting on films and the hire of the Locus Centre. Why not join? You don't have to join in advance – just come along to any of the performances.

Print

Breadmakers Director Yasmin Fedda has been invited to appear at the Star and Shadow Cinema, Battlefield, Newcastle Upon Tyne, on Wednesday 19th December at 7.30pm where she will be in discussion with Light Bulb 08 Director, Craig.

Kuwaiti-born Palestinian film-maker Yasmin Fedda has a background in anthropology, and has worked on several film projects in the Middle East, USA and around the UK, including working with Bridge and Tunnel Productions in Newcastle. She comes to the Star and Shadow to talk about her life, politics, work, and future projects, all informed by a migratory life that has taken her from Palestine to Canada, Qatar to Scotland and Syria to Kuwait.

They will also be showing two of Yasmin’s short documentaries:

Breadmakers (2007, 11 mins) looks at the intricate social relationships in a community of milking desertworkers with learning disabilities making a variety of organic breads for shops in Edinburgh.

Milking the Desert (2004, 25 mins) explores the life of Frederic, a French novice at the St. Moses the Abyssinian monastery deep in the Syrian desert. We follow him and Syrian monk Boutrous through their daily chores and routines: milking goats, making cheese and praying. Their lives create a backdrop for Muslim and Christian relations in the area.
