A RHAYADER film-maker is to have his work screened as part of the London 2012 Festival.
Turning Points, created by Rhayader artist Chris Tally Evans, is a ten-minute film celebrating life-changing moments when a meeting, event, or something unexpected leads us in a new and better direction.
James Bond legend, Sir Roger Moore, Olympian Jamie Baulch, visually impaired dancer Lyn Street, schoolboy Daniel Chapman, former career girl Ellen Jackman and Chris Tally Evans all tell their tales.
“It’s fantastic to get the chance to have my work included in such a momentous festival,” said Chris, who recently wrote a five part series for BBC Radio 4.
“It’s great that so many people have become involved in this project and I can’t wait to see the effect their brilliant stories have on an audience.”
The two-year project was commissioned by the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad Unlimited programme, celebrating disability, arts, culture and sport on an unprecedented scale. It has also been awarded funding from the Welsh Government and former First Minister, Rhodri Morgan, has contributed a story.
Turning Points will be screened at Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff, on Wednesday, June 27 at 6pm and at the Elan Valley Visitor Centre on Friday, July 6 at 7pm. It will also be presented at Unlimited: The Revelation Starts Here, a ten-day celebration at London’s Southbank Centre, running from August 31 to September 9.
Turning Points was produced and directed by Chris Tally Evans, cameras and sound by Caroline John and Steve Groves, music by Ruth Montgomery and the Barnet ILS.
