French Toast: Breadmakers in Quebec


Breadmakers will be shown at the Quebec International Ethnographic Film Festival.

This internationally renowned ethnographic film festival has moved from being a Montreal based event to one that now spans the province of Quebec. The University of Chicoutimi has joined the festival’s committee, thus reaffirming the success of their annual events devoted to the discipline of visual anthropology.

This year, the FIFEQ is celebrating its fifth anniversary and they will be holding events in Montreal, Quebec City and Chicoutimi on January 25-27 2008. Photography exhibitions, discussion tables and conferences will be presented in order to enhance their wide variety of films chosen for the festival…all of which are free of charge for everyone!

Breadmakers: A Star in the Shadow


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.


Breadmakers toasted at Sundance


This is an article taken from The Scotsman newspaper on the 7th December 2007.

Flavoured with linseed, walnut or oatmeal, organic bread from the Garvald Bakery is already famous with diners at some of Scotland's top eateries. Now a film about a unique community of bakers with learning disabilities is poised to spread the Edinburgh-based bakery's reputation to the United States.

Breadmakers, a 11-minute documentary, has won a screening at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival. The event, founded by the actor Robert Redford, is held in Park City, Utah.

The film, which has no voice-over or narrative, concentrates on about four adults from more than 30 who work in the bakery in the capital's Gorgie Road, part of the Garvald Centre.

Funded by the Bridging the Gap new talent initiative, the film has shown at the Edinburgh International Film Festival and at another festival in Iran.
