Two and a Half Questions (PG) is an exploration of the lives and aspirations of the Windrush generation and those who came after them.

Working with a group of young people, the filmmaker, Clovis Lowe, captured interviews with people of Caribbean and African heritage from all walks of life, from lawyers and dancers to politicians, social workers and entrepreneurs. The team interviewed a range of people aged 14 to 87 years old, and asked them three questions:

1. What impact has race had on your life?
2. What are your hopes for the future?
3. How old are you?

Their responses uncover attitudes and issues within education, employment, religion and wider society to create a fascinating portrait of the range of experiences that has shaped the black community in London over the past 70 years.

The film was funded by Lambeth Council's ELEVATE Neighbourhoods programme.
