Home Movie

This intimate family story is told through home movie , stored in a wardrobe for over fifty years and found during a recent house move. The film shows an idyllic picture of 1950s middle class life in Cardiff narrated by one of the little girls, filmmaker Caroline Pick, now over sixty years old. But gradually the footage hints at something unspoken: snatches of tales of those left behind, of silence about the past, absences unexplained. This moving film is a story of immigration, dislocation, assumed identities and family secrets. Eighteen close relatives dead ....and never mentioned.
