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)

Tony Conrad @ Hallwalls

Culled from nearly 40 years of Hallwalls' still and video archives (1977–2014), this exhibition will serve as a prelude to Introducing Tony Conrad, the upcoming retrospective at the UB Art Gallery and Albright Knox Art Gallery, by showcasing a selection of performances and still imagery documenting Conrad's decades-long association with Hallwalls.
