About the Project

Stories on Screen was a project commissioned in August 2021 by HighTide Theatre. We collaborated with filmmakers Creative Nation, Suffolk Refugee Support and 4YP to enable young people to make short films about what’s important to them. 
A 16 year old new resident from Afghanistan told us about his first impressions of Suffolk and his hopes for the future. Rhiannon, 18, took us to her local high street in Ipswich to amplify the experiences of independent shop owners during the pandemic. 

This was the first time that both of these young people had ever done anything like this. We hope you enjoy their stories.
