Synopsis

In this documentary, a group of filmmakers are inspired by a photo of Toxteth taken in the 1970s by photojournalist Don McCullin to explore the community as it stands now. This inner-city area of Liverpool, also known by its postcode ‘Liverpool 8’, is historically known as a working-class and diverse area, where many religions and cultures co-exist, but which has been unfortunately known for a high rate of unemployment and crime. The film explores, through different approaches by local filmmakers, the Toxteth of today and heads to the crux of the often-misunderstood community - the residents that make it such a unique place, ranging from artists to beekeepers. This creative documentary is a warm portrait of a community and explores contemporary issues in the UK.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
