Set in 19th-century rural Wales, this is an exquisitely eerie feature debut from English writer-director William McGregor.
Gwen lives on a farm in the hills of Snowdonia with her mother, Elen (Maxine Peake) and little sister Mari. Like nearly all the local men, Gwen’s father is away at War. Elen, Gwen, and Mari must maintain a punishing work schedule to keep their farm going, but they are plagued by one ominous occurrence after another, as well as by a town that begins to become suspicious of their behaviour.
We will be screening William McGregor’s short film Who’s Afraid of the Water Sprite? before the feature.
