A stellar debut film from award-winning journalist Nadine White, Barrel Children: The Families Windrush Left Behind peels back the layered tales of Caribbean youngsters who grew up away from their parents before migrating to join them in Britain.
The story of Windrush has come into painfully sharp focus in recent years but what is less well-known is the story of the children of these pioneers whose parents left to rebuild Britain and they only knew of through the ‘barrel’ care packages sent back.
These are the children’s stories of reconciliation and rediscovery within a new world that made little sense to them.
Following the screening filmmaker Nadine White will host a Q&A with elders from the local Derby community, teasing out memories and recollections of their experiences in light of her film Barrel Children: The Families Windrush Left Behind.
Part of the 75th Anniversary Windrush events.
