Preview: Pili Pala + Q&A

Monday, 2 September 2019 - 6:00pm
Chapter, Cardiff

A chance to see this new drama from S4C, starring Sian Reese-Williams (Craith/Hidden) before it is broadcast later this month. Simultaneous translation and subtitles will be provided.

Sara Morris (Sian Reese-Williams - Craith/Hidden) loves her job. A senior consultant in a Fetal Medicine Department, she thrives on bringing new life into the world and believes passionately in enabling women to have the best births possible, despite working in an overstretched and under-resourced unit. When her friend Elin (Fflur Medi Owen) asks to be put under her care, she’s more than happy to oblige, against the advice of colleagues. She is delighted her friend has finally conceived after years of heartbreak and failed attempts. But when complications arise Sara is put in an impossible position. 

Pili Pala centres on a human but ‘bad medical practice’ decision that sets in motion a chain of events and repercussions that threaten everything. Sara’s career is at risk and her personal life is put under unbearable strain.

A drama about family and friendships with universal themes: the perception of loyalty; the storm of betrayal; the desperation of infertility; and the moral and emotional dilemmas of termination.

Set on the north east coast of Wales, Pili Pala showcases both its beauty and the faded memories of past glory: a breathtaking backdrop to a heart wrenching drama.


This screening will be followed by a Q&A with Nora Ostler Spiteri (Producer), Tic Ashfield (Composer), Phil Rowlands (Writer), Claire Winyard (Director), Rhys Ap Trefor (Actor) and Dr Bryan Beattie (Consultant Obstetrician) in conversation with Roger Williams (Bang).
