This film is a culmination of 10 weeks of film and animation sessions with an intergenerational group in the Wigan area. The workshops explored how objects can provide a key to stories and details that are important to each person in the group, be it a penny that has travelled the world through wars and peace, or an iPhone that connects its user to the world. We worked with the group using animation and green-screen to find ways of visually representing the stories behind these objects.
