With her father away fighting a war, Gwen must look after her younger sister Mari and mother Elen, as well as ensuring the upkeep of the family farm in Snowdonia, 1855. But with village residents dying after an outbreak of cholera and Gwen’s mother struck down by a mysterious illness, the locals become insistent that the family sell their property, though Elen assures her daughter that they will never do so. When Gwen begins to see visions during the night – unsure whether they are real, imagined or something in between – and the family wake up to find all their sheep slaughtered, Gwen must find a way for the three of them to safely make it through the chaos all around them. ‘Gwen’ is an eerie, atmospheric folk tale, located in the Welsh countryside and set in the midst of the industrial revolution.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
