'Footprints of our Fathers' is a short fictional drama film about a Wigton family during the First World War. The film was produced by NADT (North Allerdale Development Trust) as part of an exhibition project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The project involved a group of young people researching the effects the war had on the people of Wigton and from their research, a short film script was developed with Lyndsey Walker, who also directed the film.
