Today I found this on wiki, which I've somehow missed before:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Welsh_films It's a good long list and has Welsh language and English language films -
Phillip, I'd never heard of that, now I'm going to have to pore over it and look for the watch!
Un Nos Ola Leuad is a very good film by Endaf Emlyn who wrote the theme music to Pobol y Cwm. He is a very nice man. Milwr Bychan is a very moving film by Karl Francis who has had his troubles. Next year television companies will be marking the hundred years since the start of WWI so I expect to see Hedd Wyn on our screens again.
Diolch Gaynor....I was looking for Milwr Bychan on Amazon ( com and uk ) yesterday but failed to find it.....will definitely follow up on the other titles you suggest.
Apologies if I'm repeating any information already given but I came across "Milwr Bychan" (1986), a film about a Welsh soldier who shoots an IRA gunman in self-defence and is then used as a scapegoat by politicians. "Un Nos Ola' Leuad" (1991) is based on the book One Moonlit Night. "A Run For Your Money" is a 1949 Ealing comedy about 2 Welsh miners from Hafoduwchbenceubwllymarchogcoch (fictional village) going to London for the first time. I also saw that a Japanese film (released by the excellent Studio Ghibli) called "Laputa, Castle in the Sky" was inspired by the director's visit to Welsh mining villages.
Ok...I am just going to put this out there....Rydwi'n Cymraig a rydwi'n bwy yn Los Angeles....enough Welsh....it gets weaker the longer I stay here in America and my computer keeps trying to correct the spelling!!!...I am actually from Merthyr.
Simple question....I have two projects (a documentary and a television series) I am currently wanting to produce in Wales.....any one out there with money or connections who would like to come on board Just asking!!!
You can pay to watch on amazon.com for about 2.99USD, some less (varies per title). Amazon prime is an extra thing - it's $79USD for a year (if you're in the US,don't know about UK or elsewhere) and then a lot of movies are free and you get shipping free and lower prices on some other stuff.
Most of the titles in the film section of the bookstore that have double listings are available on Prime. Which means you can watch them on demand for two or three bucks
