Ebol (which means 'foal' in the Welsh language) was made by artists Sean Harris and Jim Brook working in collaboration with communities in the Conwy Valley, North Wales.
Taking a poetic look at man's changing relationship with the horse, the film, which is embedded in the landscape of the Conwy Valley, is founded on three extraordinary prehistoric objects, all of which were found there: the 13,000 year old chin bone of a horse incised with patterns, a 2,000 year old gold coin and an Iron Age ceremonial 'crown'.
The chin bone of the horse has been described as Wales' first artwork and is now in the collection of the British Museum. The coin, like the bone, was found on the Great Orme and can be seen in Llandudno Museum. The ceremonial helmet, or crown, was found in the south of the county near Cerrigydrudion. A reconstruction, featured in the film, can be seen in the National Museum, Cardiff.
