In this moving and thought provoking short film, we explore an important period in Lorna Cole’s life. She offers a very personal view of what life was like during the Rhodesian War. It’s easy to look back and think that many of us haven’t lived a life like that. Its true, we haven’t, but in our experience, many so-called “normal” experiences in life are just as interesting. It depends on how you tell the story.
The war was a terrible tragedy on many levels. The security forces lost 1,361 young soldiers and 468 civilians (including many farmers). This short film gives a glimpse of what it was like to live during that time and her views on looking back at the past.
Recording your family history
If you want to document your own family’s stories, then it’s worth getting them recorded soon. Time can easily pass you by when it becomes all too late. Perhaps your father loved books, or loved building boats. Whatever their story is, it would be a lovely keepsake that becomes part of your family history records. We have developed unique storytelling techniques specifically for family history projects; and we can tailor a package specifically for you.
