About this video
Hundreds of people pass up and down Mulberry Street every year. Thousands once lay beneath their feet. This living memorial remembers 2600 people, victims of the Irish Famine in the 1840s who managed to make the journey from their homes in Ireland to Liverpool, but no further.
Whose History?, a series of four films created by production company Sidelong Glance, tells the stories of people who have lived, worked and studied on or nearby the University of Liverpool’s South Campus over the past 200 years.
The series considers individual lives and collective experiences. It examines relationships between place, memory, and forgetting. It asks questions about identity, exclusion, and belonging. And it does all this through the words of many brave, creative, and dedicated people who have walked the streets of this global city at different times in history, and whose influence – even if we can’t see it, or haven’t always known where to look for it – continues to shape the area and its cultures today.
