Yr Aelwyd won the 'Best Film Award' in the Avant-Garde category at the Swansea Film Festival.
The film is a 'visual recording' of the thoughts and memories, triggered on return to the childhood home after spending a lifetime elsewhere ... the sole survivor of a once close and loving family, and the last in the genetic line.
'Yr Aelwyd' is a Welsh expression that has no direct English translation, but describes the feeling, memories, warmth and security of the home and family, and in this case the consequential nostalgia. The direct translation of Aelwyd means 'hearth' or 'fireplace' ... something that would be found in everyone's home in bygone days and would be the 'heart' and the feeling of 'home'.
