This project was commissioned by The Lichfield Festival as part of their Learning and Participation programme. Pupils from two schools have researched aspects of World War Two and filmed interviews with veterans and people with memories of the period. The result is 12 excellent films that were premiered at the Wedge Gallery at Lichfield College this evening. Many people were moved to tears, and Len Owens, an SAS veteran was keen to praise the pupils. In my mind praise doesn’t come higher than that.
We have been experimenting with using a Blog for the project, to enable pupils to communicate with each other and share their work, so you can read more about the film making process on the Lichfield Festival Learning and Participation Blog (lichfieldfestivallp.wordpress.com/) under the category ‘Memory Box’.
