The Green Hollow

A film-poem to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Aberfan disaster, using verse, imagery and music to explore the identity of the village before and after the tragedy. It aims to embrace the disaster’s legacy as well as celebrating the strength of the community today. The script draws on interviews with survivors, parents and those involved in the rescue operation, many of whom have never before spoken about their experiences. Written by Owen Sheers and performed by a stellar cast including Michael Sheen, Jonathan Pryce, Sian Phillips , Eve Myles and Iwan Rheon with contributions from the local community.
