WHITE NANNY BLACK CHILD
Over 70,000 West African children were fostered unofficially by white British families between 1955 and 1995, as their parents pursued dreams of a better life in Britain. WHITE NANNY BLACK CHILD is a story of mass migration, parenting, childhood, identity, neglect, and abuse.
In this tale of modern British history, WHITE NANNY BLACK CHILD takes a deep dive into more personal stories of varying natures. The film follows the adults as they engage in various treatments on the retreat, allowing viewers to get immersed in their stories and feel as though they are experiencing each breath of what they lived through.
