Growing Home: A Film by Jodie Russian-Red

Do you know your mum’s favourite flower? Did your grandma ever gift you a cutting? Did you grow broad beans with your children? Growing Home is a literary film which unpicks the connections between memories, emotion, and gardening from the female perspective. Allotment holder and writer Jodie Russian-Red has collaborated with all-female filmmakers FlyGirl Films and writers Caro Fentiman and Naomi Marklew to write and record three brand new pieces of writing and poetry based on their own personal histories with growing food and flowers, whilst taking inspiration from conversations with women allotment holders and novice gardeners at a community garden in Durham.
