This week: Mixed Marriage: 2: But what about the children...?
When a racially mixed couple - black and white - decide to marry it is a brave decision, frequently one made in the face of prejudice and bigotry.
White girls married to coloured men or coloured girls with white husbands must find their own answers to the many extra problems that are bound to beset their marriages. But frequently the main consequence and burden of their decision to marry is one that concerns their children. For the children: neither one world nor the other, in a society in which there exists violent race prejudice. How can the parents protect them? What special armour do they need to face the life ahead?
A Czech film with English sub-titles.
Starring Vladimir Pucholt, I. Pavlova
In a pretty setting of hop fields beside the river Elbe in the late summer two hop-picking students, Filip and Hanka, fall in love, and the mean efforts of Honza to break them up only brings them closer together. The film's chief inspiration was West Side Story, but scriptwriter Vratislav Blazek says, 'Our film is not an imitation in any way. We tried to make a genuine Czech musical'.
A last look around the daily scene with Michael Dean, Joan Bakewell, Tony Bilbow, Brian King and Sheridan Morley.
