Sun Sea & Satan is a hard hitting emotionally charged documentary by filmaker Bill Maloney who’s family were all brought up in the United Kingdom’s care system.
The film covers Maloney’s visit and interpretation of Jersey, Channel Islands, following the ongoing child abuse investigations of the children’s care home ‘Haut de la Garenne’. Bill highlights connections with the Sea Cadets and children being brought from London care homes for ‘sailing holidays’ on the Island.
Due to his and his family’s experiences of establishment care homes Bill Maloney felt compelled to see first hand the response of Islanders to the alleged abuse claims and their general feeling for the Governing States.
A mixed response of silence, anger and insensitivity is catalogued from this island of geographical beauty with an ugly underbelly. The documentary includes mainstream news reports with Jeremy Paxman, Stuart Syvret, Lenny Harper, Esther Rantzen and Frank Walker.
