Screening as part of our Made In Wales Season showcasing Welsh filmmaking talent in front of and behind the camera.

The Male Voice Choir is a Welsh institution, and one of the most indelible symbols of the country all over the world. But as an institution it is also one in crisis, with rapidly decreasing numbers and an ageing membership.

This documentary is the story of one choir that refuses to go gently into that good night.

This humorous and melancholic portrait of a male voice choir in North East Wales begins with the filmmaker's father, Ed, a 90-year-old widower, selling the family home and making early arrangements for his own funeral. Weekly practice is his last remaining solace, but with an average age of 74, his beloved choir is facing a crisis of its own. They must act fast or face extinction, and the hunt begins to find "brown haired men" in their 40s and 50s to keep the choir going. As their search intensifies, the group grows closer. Ed finds new meaning in his life, while Merf deals with his own bad news by focusing on the choir's revival, and Gwyn laughs in the face of a prostate cancer diagnosis, walking the wing of a plane to raise money for charity. Eventually, they travel to Northern Ireland to perform for the first time in two decades.

  • Cast: Odessa Young, Josh O'Connor, Olivia Colman, Colin Firth, Sope Dirisu, Glenda Jackson

"Screenwriter Alice Birch (Normal People, Lady Macbeth) and director Eva Husson (Bang Gang, Girls of the Sun) prove the perfect creative duo bringing rich sensuality to this film starting Olivia Colman, Josh O’Connor and Colin Firth.

Henley, in the mid-1920s, young maid Jane (Young) works for the Nivens, one of several local ‘grand’ families who have been devastated by the loss of sons in the First World War. Jane is having a secret, passionate affair with Paul (Josh O’Connor), the sole surviving son of the Nivens’ neighbours, and on Mothering Sunday, Jane has plans to bicycle over to Paul’s house while his parents and servants are away, for a secret rendezvous. But Paul is engaged to be married to someone else and Jane has ambitions to be a writer.

Eva Husson and director of photography Jamie Ramsay bring a vibrant physicality to this period setting, creating a substantial tenderness and sense of place."
