Three Wishes for Derby

A subtle documentary, giving voice to many of the hard to reach groups of Derby has just been released by Toothpix. Commissioned by Derby City Partnership, the film asks Eastern European immigrants, deaf people, homeless people, sex workers, the LGBT community, a dance group for differently able people and a village cut off by poor transport links about changes they'd like to see in the future.

Sometimes surprisingly simple and similar answers come from the groups and the film was used as part of the consultation strategy for DCP in planning the future of the city over the next fifteen years.
