A new feature length drama from Boom Cymru for S4C. MORFYDD is based on the story of the talented singer, pianist and composer from Treforest, Morfydd Owen. After moving to London to study music she fell in love and married the psychoanalyst Ernest Jones. Morfydd tragically died following an operation carried out on the kitchen table at her husband’s family home in Mumbles.

The film portrays a marriage of two totally different characters. The intelligent psychoanalyst in his thirties and a lively, romantic girl in her twenties. It is also the life story of an accomplished composer and musician, a life that came to an early end when she was only 26 years old.

Starring BAFTA Cymru winning actress Rhian Blythe in the title role and with Elin Manahan Thomas as Morfydd’s singing voice.

Please note, this film is in Welsh with English subtitles. 

A Q&A with Rhian Blythe and the film's writer, Siwan Jones, will follow the screening. The Q&A will be conducted in Welsh with simultaneous translation.
