'Footprints of our Fathers' is a short drama film about a Wigton family in World War One. The film was produced by NADT (North Allerdale Development Trust) as part of a 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. From their research, a short film script was developed and Lyndsey Walker directed the film working with Jonathan Wright as Director of Photography.
