Woodend Barn in Banchory is screening a pair of films exploring our changing attitudes to food, as part of Banchory Fairtrade fortnight – running from Monday, February 25, to Sunday, March 10.

The Dancing Forest and Best Before are screening on Thursday, February 28, at 7.30pm and there will be a stall operated by Banchory Fairtrade group so people can stock up after being inspired by the documentaries.

These films explore how different communities are changing the food system, each in their own way.

The Dancing Forest celebrates the extraordinary women of Togo who are taking back the power to grow their own produce.

They returned to an infertile land 25 years ago determined to revitalise and enrich the lives of those who remained.

Best Before looks at the food revolution occurring closer to home in London. It follows city farms, roof gardens and food cooperatives and other groups who are creating new sustainable ways of producing and distributing food across the city.

The fortnight aims to promote Fairtrade throughout the Deeside town and encourage people to use businesses who stock its products.
