Tales from the Front Line
This short film documents the contribution of Black workers at the front line of the Covid-19 crisis, using verbatim interviews, and creating a lasting historical record available online at talawa.com. The first film stars Jo Martin (Doctor Who; Casualty), directed by Michael Buffong, who shares a teacher’s experience of trying to keep themselves and their pupils safe after decades of budget cuts. It explores how new conversations opened up in the wake of the global Black Lives Matter movement, and the challenges of supporting students’ education when nothing was certain anymore.
