A Very Brit(ish) Voice by @jaha_browne is a documentary film that explores the stories of Caribbean people who travelled in the UK between 1948 and 1971 and settled in Leicester.⁠
⁠
The film tells these stories through the words of seven otherwise ‘missing voices’ and reflects their experiences in the community.⁠
With contributions from Dennis ‘Sugar’ Christopher, Nelista Cuffy, Elaine Hinds, Robert Lee, Pearl Ricketts, Boston Williams and musical storytelling from Mellow Baku; the film captures the experiences of the Windrush Generation and that of the present generation in their own words.⁠

One week left to watch the stellar debut film from award-winning journalist @Nadine_Writes, Barrel Children: The Families Windrush Left Behind. The film 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.⁠
