BLACK BRITISH SHORT FILM: ‘SORRY WE DON’T HELP DARKIES’ – STARRING RICHIE CAMPBELL

jamaicanproblem

A Jamaican family living in London’s Notting Hill during the tension and violence that led to the 1958 race riots, comes to a brutal realisation that life in post war Britain is far from the ‘Mother Country’ that would welcome them with open arms as they had been told…

..

A situation that MANY West Indian migrants had to face while living in the ‘Mother Country’ back then, that often gets swept under the carpet and played down when discussed today.

Well done to everyone involved in the making of this short film. The aftermath of the attack and it’s effect on the family (particularly between the husband and wife), and other events leading up to the 1958 Notting Hill race riots should definitely be explored further.

I hope they receive enough support and secure funding to continue this story.
