Lagareh - The Last Born

Experimental Film United Kingdom 2022
By: Alberta Whittle

Shot on location in Scotland, England, Sierra Leone and Barbados and featuring footage from Venice, LAGAREH – THE LAST BORN brings together histories and communities that connect across these geographies to decipher different modes of not only taking care of the dead and confronting grief, but also imagining how to create families of kithship. Alberta Whittle embraces storytelling as a means of exploring displacement, family and
community.


The themes of the film build on ideas of the Caribbean Gothic and Hauntology, but are also bound by the desire to cultivate hope and personal healing as forms of resistance against a background of catastrophe. The film is intended to offer an insight into different potential layers of resistance that allow for Black love to be situated in proximity with historical sites of trauma that Whittle re-inscribes with rage, hope and exhaustion.
