Dear children, parents, schools, embassies, refugee groups, and anyone else who helped make this project possible,
Last year, or before, you helped photographer Caroline Irby in her search for a child from every country in the world now living in the UK. As you know, this work was published in the Guardian magazine and on their website a few months ago.
Caroline is currently away on a new photographic expedition in Africa but has asked us here at Eleven Film to inform you that she has made a new series of four short films, using the photographs and interviews she collected. The series, titled 'Home from Home' will air on Channel 4 at 7.55pm on Monday 16th, Tuesday 17th, Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th March 2009.
Whereas in the Guardian magazine only some of the children/nationalities could be shown, a child from every country will appear in this TV series.
Thank you again for your help and participation. We hope you enjoy the films.
