A Journey to Canada
The filming took place over a week at various different locations including the Together Trust Centre; the Glaciere boat at Liverpool Docks; Leyland Farm; Macclesfield Silk Museum and Salford Museum and Art Gallery. We are extremely grateful to all the locations for allowing us to film at their sites as well as the various actors that got involved. It allowed the history of the charity come to life for the young people involved.
It also allowed them to work alongside a professional film crew and experience the production (and sometimes boredom) of filming a documentary. Brickhouse Productions Limited worked with the young people and actors to tell the story of the ‘Journey to Canada’ both through live action and retrospective feedback. This was an important part of the documentary as it allowed the young people to reflect on the day’s filming, the part of the journey that had been told and how they connected with the orphans.
We hope the film is a fun yet informative way to teach the local community and beyond about the charity’s past. We’d love for you to let us know what you think!
