Bread Makers

11 min. / documentary / 2007 / Scotland

Yasmin Fedda's award winning documentary Breadmakers focuses on Edinburgh's Garvald Bakery, a social enterprise staffed by 12 people with learning disabilities.

At this unique Edinburgh bakery, the community of workers with learning disabilities makes a variety of organic breads for daily delivery to shops and cafes in the city.

The workers interact using individual expressions and sign language, revealing intricate social relationships with each other and their support workers.

The Garvald Bakery is part of a centre inspired by the ideas of Rudolph Steiner where the workers realize their potential for self-discovery and creativity in a social environment.
