Caribbean Through the Lens – Huddersfield/Kirklees

Caribbean Through the Lens – Huddersfield/Kirklees

“A huge congratulations to all the team and inspiring elders from your Caribbean through a lens project. The film captures the memories of elders from the Caribbean in such a beautiful way, you almost feel as if you are on a journey with them and this I think is the real power of reminiscence projects that allow people to express and convey their own re-interpretations of archival material.

KLTV, in association with KADC, certainly sets a high benchmark in terms of film edit and production quality, capturing the real essence of elderly people from the Caribbean in a thoughtful intelligent way”.

Sandra Shakespeare
National Archives

Caribbean Through the Lens told by five main characters takes you “Back in Time”. Snow, cold, when we came to England and back home are just a few remarkable stories told by these excellent narrators and supported by some ‘amazing pictures’ provided by the National Archives. This webcast is culturally, socially and historically spectacular.
