Last night I watched the fabulous film, Sleep Furiously (2007) by Gideon Koppel, a documentary love-letter to Trefeurig, the Welsh farming community in Ceredigion where he grew up, and where his parents found refuge from Nazi Germany during the second world war. The film is a portrait of a landscape and population that is changing rapidly as the old ways and generation are dying out. It reminded me of the photographs of James Ravilious from rural Devon.

Here’s the trailer-

And watch a question and answer session with director Gideo Koppel from May 2009 here-

And read a review of the film by Peter Bradshaw in the Guardian.
