Synopsis

This animated short tells the story of Capel Celyn, a small village in North Wales which housed a close community of families across multiple generations. It provides a timeline of events across 1955, 1956 and 1957 which began with Liverpool council sending academics to the area to scope out plans for a reservoir and submitting a bill allowing them to bypass planning permission. In November 1956, a protest against the bill was held, followed by a vote in Parliament in July 1957. Presented in Welsh with English subtitles, this sombre short film from a young Welsh filmmaker is a powerful reminder of a significant moment in the story of Wales.

Animeiddiad sy’n adrodd stori Capel Celyn, pentref yng Ngogledd Cymru a chartref cenedalethau o deuluoedd a chymuned glos. Mae’r ffilm yn ffocysu ar ddigwyddiadau rhwng 1955 a 1957, wrth i aelodau Cyngor Lerpwl ymweld â’r ardal i baratoi cynlluniau ar gyfer cronfa ddŵr yn yr ardal ac er mwyn iddyn nhw fedru cyflwyno mesur a fyddai’n caniatáu iddyn nhw fwrw ymlaen â’r cynllun heb fynd drwy’r broses gynllunio briodol.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
