Cini Film brings together Lazaro’s family memories, which were captured in small Polaroid format paintings gleaned from 8mm home movies’ camera that his father used. Like all celluloid, these photos are slightly tarnished, out of focus, double exposed, became the source for documenting and re-visiting how his family "settled in England". It showcased how negotiating the imaginary homeland on a daily basis, would have been the reality for many families of the commonwealth that migrated Westward during this time.
