Windrush Generations from 1000 Londoners

1000 Londoners presents:
Windrush Generations

1000 LondonersThe multi-award winning 1000 Londoners project presents a brand new collection of documentary portraits: Windrush Generations.

Over ten years, the Chocolate Films flagship project portrays 1,000 people who consider themselves to be Londoners, taking in all ages, religions, race, income, interests and opinions.

This latest collection brings together ten new digital portraits exploring the lives of Londoners with Caribbean heritage, from those who arrived in the city in the 40s and 50s, to their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

The films include: Jocelyn, the story of the equality campaigner who persuaded shops on Oxford Street to let Black women work on the shop floor; Alex, in which a ground-breaking BBC journalist reminisces about his interviews with Bob Marley, Mohammed Ali and more; and Sara, which follows one of the leaders of the Windrush protests as she campaigns in Parliament Square.

There are a series of screenings in London in November:

Both screenings will be followed by a short panel discussion about the legacy of the Windrush Generations, with Rachel Wang from Chocolate Films and several of the featured Londoners.
