Traveller Families

Open University - Youth module

The brief was to make a series of films exploring lives of children growing up in poverty. Making contact with children living in poverty is difficult. We worked closely with and developed the trust of youth agencies to connect with subjects not often interviewed.  We made films with young white Welsh girls and Irish travellers, the biggest minority in Wales. This film explored bad housing, lack of decent food, access to education and the subjects’ hopes for the future.
