The Unwanted: The Secret Windrush Files
David Olusoga opens previously unseen government files to argue that the Windrush scandal and the so-called hostile environment for black British immigrants has been 70 years in the making. The film features Sarah O'Connor, Anthony Bryan and Judy Griffith. Settled in the UK legally since childhood, they were re-classified as illegal immigrants by new regulations. Unable to show proof of their nationality status, they lost jobs, savings and their health, facing deportation back to countries they could barely remember.
