Caroline Pick’s Home Movie is a beautifully constructed film capturing the previously veiled story of her parents’ lives in 1930s Czechoslovakia and her own childhood in 1950s Britain. An artist, film-maker and former commissioning editor at the BBC, Caroline’s editing skills have shaped a powerful testimony to a lost world. She will be talking with Lisa Appignanesi about family secrets and the relationship between past and present.
