The House on Carter Road

Directed By Shawn Gerrard.    

This short film masterfully covers housing segregation in the 50s and 60s, where black families where systematically kept out of more well-to-do neighbourhoods. The narrative captures the frustration of a black couple, but leave us with a lovely pay off at the end.
