The Fight For Freedom is a video art piece made from a series of co-authored animated films created by children from Maybury, Stockwell, Thorpe Park and Biggin Hill Primary Schools in Hull led by award winning artist and filmmaker Quentin Budworth.
The animated video is based on the theme of the ‘Fight For Freedom’ within the narratives and history of the transatlantic slave trade. The films explore these issues using light and shadow, narrative and music.
Over eighty year five children actively contributed to the creation of this work.
The work was exhibited at The Wise Institute on the Old High Street in Hull on the 4th and 5th of September 2014 as part of The Freedom Light Trail.
‘The Fight For Freedom’ is part of The Freedom Festival and Roots & Wings Joint Commissions ‘The Long Walk to Freedom’ Site Specific Commissions Programme 2014
