Réal : Terry Westby-Nunn, 2010, DOC


Set against the backdrop of British colonial society in Aden in the 1950s, LETTERS FROM TEDDY explores the emotional repercussions of an ill-fated relationship between director Terry Westby-Nunn’s grandfather, Teddy, the Chief Justice of Aden, and her grandmother, Sally – and its impact on their son, Tony. Through the dynamic use of 8mm family archive footage, riveting letters between Teddy and Sally, as well as interviews with her, highly entertaining, father Tony, Westby-Nunn pieces together the sad story of her paternal grandparents. At the heart of this fascinating story is the vindictive colonial society which tore her father’s family apart.
