I’m extremely excited to announce that a film I’ve produced and directed for the National Trust house at Llanerchaeron will be launched on May 3rd, and the exhibition, including the film, can be seen from May until October.
It’s been a privilege and a joy to be a part of ‘Petticoats of Power’ which, in 2018, marks one hundred years after some women got the right to vote for the first time. Celebrating these powerful women by throwing light on their achievements and their lives has been a powerful experience. Women’s stories have often stood in the shadows at National Trust properties, as many did not own land in their own right, yet many of these women have important stories to tell that show how power comes in many forms and often does not require legal recognition to be used effectively.
The film encounters five dynamic stories of women who lived at Llanerchaeron.
