WHEREVER THE ROAD TAKES ME
Wherever the Road Takes Me, made in collaboration with St Cuthbert’s and RMBC, portrays the lives of six proud members of the Gypsy and Traveller community. The film challenges stereotypes through the telling of young people’s individual stories. The voices you hear on the film are young people from the Gypsy and Travelling community. The people you see are young actors from the M6 Youth Theatre.
The film has been shown at school assemblies across Rochdale Borough, providing these young people with the opportunity to influence their peers and share their stories.
Role: Producer and Director. Filmed and edited by Tommy O'Connor. Funded by Rochdale Council in partnership with M6 Theatre/Unlocking Voices.
'I am really proud of this film and the message it will send out. This film is a chance to change people's mind and attitudes about our community.'
