Filmed and directed by Martin Parr, this short but sweet documentary looks at Teddy Gray’s sweet factory in Dudley in the West Midlands, a family owned business that still makes their candies by hand. If Willy Wonka was real, this would be his factory.
Magnum photographer, Martin Parr returns to using a film camera in this wonderfully engaging documentary about Teddy Gray’s sweet factory in Dudley in the West Midlands.
Established in 1826, Teddy Gray’s has always been a family owned and run business. Five generations have worked and contributed towards the business of keeping the traditional, hand-made methods of sweet making alive.
The film is part of the Black Country Stories body of work commissioned by Multistory to document life in the Black Country by capturing and celebrating the unique mix of communities living in the area and of existing traditional Black Country life.
