PRSC brings you: We Make Our Own Future, a series of documentaries designed to empower and inspire.

Each film is about the power people have to change the world – from creating hip hop in the ghettos and favelas, to changing the face of education, or growing our own food – each film addresses a global issue with a focus on creative human solutions, and is accompanied by talks from Bristol activists and experts about local responses to these problems.
