A Black History Month event by Our Version Media and MAST Mayflower Studios.

Open to all.

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.

Special invitation: 
Our Version Media, “Black In Focus” film night creator, invites you to join them from 6.30pm in MAST’s cafe bar for socialising and drinks before the film.
