Set in the Welsh farming community Trefeurig, this portrait captures both the rural landscape and way of life for inhabitants of the village where the filmmaker's parents, refugees from Nazi Germany, settled. With a soundtrack by Richard D. James (aka Aphex Twin), the film document stands as an elegy to the pre-mechanised world that it remains in the heart of Wales, where people do not own the land but belong to it. "Images of wistful sadness are interlaced with humour and moments of skin-prickling beauty that leave the audience undone…profoundly and unexpectedly moving." (Wendy Ide, The Times of London)

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings

Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
