Last week I mentioned that, back in 1976, I had made a 16mm film of the Old Swan Community Festival (Super Swan). I am still trying to track down a copy so that it can be shown again. The British Film Institute apparently have a copy in their archives, so hopefully a dvd can be made to remind the community of what turned out to be a one-off festival.
I decided to look through my photographs – and I found a sheet of transparencies I had taken while filming was going on. It is a bit of a shock to think that almost all the kids photographed will now be in their forties and with families of their own. History is not just the big events but the everyday happenings – that take greater meaning as the years roll on.
