‘Black In Focus’ Black British Film Night presents: Barrel Children

Saturday 14th October 2023

An Our Version Media and MAST Mayflower Studios event for Black History Month.

Our Version Media’s twice-yearly film night showing Black British films. There’s just one rule for the films we show: no gratuitous black trauma! That means no films centred on gang violence, drugs, slavery or the negative black storylines that mainstream cinemas love to show.

Film: Barrel Children: The Families Windrush Left Behind

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.

Date and time: Saturday 14th October 2023, 6:30pm
