Y Swn (12a)

Wales | 2023 | 90’ | 12a | Lee Haven Jones | Welsh with English subtitles | Rhodri Evan, Mark Lewis Jones, Sian Reese-Williams, Lily Beau Conway

It is 1979 and Margaret Thatcher’s Conservatives are swept into power. Quickly the government breaks a campaign promise to establish a Welsh language television channel and a wave of civil disobedience follows. One man - Gwynfor Evans - threatens to starve himself to death unless the government comes good on its manifesto pledge. A film about protesting for our rights, at a time when protest is under threat, this is a timely reimagining of one of the most colourful chapters in contemporary Welsh history.
