Nadine White’s debut documentary, Barrel Children: The Families Windrush Left Behind, peels back the layered tales of the Caribbean youngsters who grew up away from their Windrush parents before migrating to join them in Britain.

Hailed as a “must watch” by Barbara Blake-Hannah, Britain’s first Black television newspaper reporter, Britain’s first Black woman MP Diane Abbott described the documentary as “a moving film about the young children that the Windrush migrants to the UK left behind and the effects of that involuntary separation”.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A, with Nadine White, director of the documentary.

Presented by Opal22 Arts and Edutainment, Brixton Heights CIC, in partnership with Phoenix.
