This animated film was created by a group of learning disabled young people, facilitated by Carousel and Junk TV as part of the Oska Bright Film Festival and Young Roots programme. The film explores the history of their home town of Worthing, West Sussex, through documents and objects held in the Worthing Museum collections from 1800s to the present day. The young people narrate the story in their own words.
This film was created as part of the Oska Bright Film Festival, featuring young people from the Worthing area. Worthing Museum has a rich collection of paintings, prints and photographs of the town, dating from 1850 to 1950. Carousel helped local young people explore the collections to create this short animated film. The young people were involved in the full development and production process from scripting to animation production, filming and creating the soundtrack. The finished film reveals Worthing's history as seen through the eyes of the project participants and is now used by the museum to engage young people and adult education groups with its collection.
