A story of immigration, of dislocation and of secrets told through home movies found unseen for over 50 years, Home Movie covers life in Czechoslovakia in the 30's all the way to Cardiff in the 60s. Hints of that which goes unspoken – snatches of tales of those left behind, of silence about the past, of absences unexplained, of non-existent family members – begin to fill in around the edges as the intriguing juxtaposition of happy images and an increasingly uneasy undercurrent lead to a moving conclusion.



Caroline Pick has been studying art over the past 10 years, alongside establishing a yoga-school in London after a long professional career in television as a documentary film-maker, producer, and commissioning editor at the BBC and Channel 4. She has just finished a MA degree in Fine Art at Brighton University.
