This animated colour film was made by participants in Carousel, an arts organisation by and for people with learning disabilities. It takes the viewer into a kaleidoscope world, following the journey of a little girl searching for a spinning top. Objects from Hove Museum's memorabilia collection inspired the young film-makers, who have a variety of learning disabilities, to complete the project as a team. The film is narrated by the group, with full subtitles, sound effects and music.
