Faith and Henry

Captivating exploration of a young interracial friendship, set against Lancashire’s industrial landscape.

1969 56 mins Silent

Overview

Lancashire lad Henry finds himself attracted to Faith, an independent-thinking black school friend of Jamaican heritage in this captivating exploration of interracial friendship. Director Jack Gold and writer Julia Jones gently and unselfconsciously explore the couple's budding romance as they walk home along the canal, through an industrial landscape of factories and viaducts. The racial conflict of the 1960s is abandoned for an engaging drama that is refreshingly free of stereotypes.
