Genre: Documentary

What is often not revealed in the many stories, films and literature on Windrush is that many people from the Caribbean settled outside of London. We know that at least 68 men from the Empire Windrush settled in Liverpool and went on to marry local women. This documentary film highlights and celebrates how interracial marriages with links to the Windrush helped to change the face of Liverpool and British identity, and explores stories of great family achievement. This screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director, Bea Freeman.

The Daughters Of the Windrush: The Descendants Stories is part of our duty to make sure that the experiences of the Windrush generation are not overlooked or forgotten, and that the Windrush scandal of 2018 is never repeated. It opens a dialogue surrounding British identity and citizenship and what we hope contributes to a more inclusive and connected society.

Bea Freeman is a filmmaker, producer and director working across TV and film in Liverpool, the UK and internationally for the past 25 years. Daughters of the Windrush is one of many from her vast media portfolio of films and documentaries. She has won many awards for her work nationally and internationally and most recently she was awarded the Liverpool City Region Culture & Creativity Judges Inspiration Award.

Food and drink by Riposo will be provided to all guests free of charge.

This screening is programmed in celebration of Windrush Day (22 June), a day which recognises the contribution made by the men and women who moved from the Caribbean to Britain, beginning with the arrival of the ship Empire Windrush in 1948.
