Celebrating the diversity of British youth cultures from the early 1970’s through to the 1990s, these rarely screened films from our region are drawn from the collections of the East Anglian Film Archive.

Featuring an extraordinary range of local news and documentaries, the film clips range from alternative lifestyles and communes in rural Suffolk, student sit-ins in Norwich, the new trend of ‘hot pants’ for ladies in 1971, to a 1985 documentary that gives voice to the young black community in Luton who gathered at weekends for house parties celebrating their West Indian heritage.

We’re looking for your photos and stories of yourself and your friends from the period 1971 – 1996. For more information email: Reel Connections at
