Jemima + Johnny (1966)

Film: a language without borders is a programme funded by Creative Europe, and happening in Germany, Denmark, and the UK. We have developed resources for seven feature films, and three short films, that each explore the experience of children arriving in an unfamiliar place, or otherwise having an experience of being different. Throughout 2018, cinemas in the UK will be showing the films, contextualised by talks and discussion:
