Writing Home

Writing Home was commissioned by The Postal Museum to be featured in their first temporary exhibition. In the film we meet different people who share stories and experiences, writing letters to loved ones. Ranging from soldiers at war, a survivor of human trafficking, and a nurse chasing a dream and a prisoner writing to friends on the outside.

A happy and rewarding shoot

It was incredible to meet so many people from all walks of life, ages and nationalities who each had their own story of why writing letters had been important for them at some point in their lives. Though at times emotionally draining, filmmaker Harriet Jones describes the shoot as one of the happiest and most rewarding she has experienced at Chocolate Films. After the shoot she decided to send each of the participants a letter saying thank you for their openness and honesty.
