Towards the end of of 2017, Amy, James, Glen and Dan worked with Caroline and Amel at The Welfare in Ystradgynlais to make two films with young people at Maesydderwen Comprehensive School and Syrian families recently arrived in Powys. “It was such a wonderful privilege to meet the men, women and children who came to Wales from Syria, and to work with them to make the films”.  Uncle Ahmed’s Canaries is a story based on the first hand accounts of the families’ experiences of leaving Syria and their journey to Wales.  The second film, written by pupils at the local school, is an homage to celebrated artist and Polish refugee Josef Hermon, called Cynefin.  Voiced by none other than charity patron and actor Michael Sheen!  The screening event took place in March and it was standing room only.   The films will be released later this year.  Keep your eyes peeled for more info.
