Details

Today we commemorate exactly a century since the death of Hedd Wyn, the nom de plume of Ellis Evans from Trawsfynydd. This is a film that depicts life in rural Wales at the start of the 20th century before World War I set friends, relatives and acquaintancess at war with each other. We see Ellis working, laughing and loving like any other young man, before the call to war interferes with his dream of winning the Chair at the National Eisteddfod. Could the strength of his muse outwit the battlefield? This film won the Spirit of the Festival award at the Celtic Film Awards in 1994, and was nominated for an Oscar.

*** Event held in Welsh. ***

Heddiw rydym yn coffáu union ganrif ers marwolaeth y bardd Hedd Wyn, sef Ellis Evans o Drawsfynydd. Mae’n ffilm am fywyd gwledig Cymreig ar ddechrau’r ugeinfed ganrif cyn i’r Rhyfel Byd Cyntaf osod cyfeillion, perthnasau a chydnabod yn erbyn ei gilydd. Gwelwn Ellis yn gweithio, chwerthin a charu fel unrhyw ddyn ifanc arall, nes daeth yr alwad i ymladd i ymyrryd â’i freuddwyd o ennill Cadair yr Eisteddfod Genedlaethol. A fyddai nerth ei awen yn drech na maes y gad? Enillodd y ffilm wobr Ysbryd yr Wyl yn yr Wyl Ffilmiau Geltaidd yn 1994 a chafodd enwebiad am Oscar.
