A Film For Wales by by Emma van Woerkom
Brechfa, mid Wales is one of those rare mysterious places that once discovered, its enigma will never leave you.
A seemingly shallow pool on the top of a hill surrounded by mountains; there is a vast unspoken deepness here. Like a tap root whose centuries of growth have bedded it down beyond Welsh rock and earth, so Brechfa Pool transforms into a mirrored conduit between the ancient and the modern worlds. To touch it’s icy waters is to stir your fingers in the old Welsh myths and their cryptic heritage. It’s a shame these stories are so little known, but this is about to change.
Film maker and Brechfa resident, Lyn Webster Wilde, is going to bring these themes to life in her new film project, The Dancing Floor. It’s easy to understand where her inspiration comes from, she lives on the edge of this esoteric stretch of water. The film, set locally in Mid Wales, employs one of the tales from the Mabingion to help answer a modern day riddle – how do we find ‘what is lost’?

I’ll now hand you over to Lyn (via her fund raising site) to explain her vision.
