A trailer has arrived for Welsh creeper The Passing, which premiered last year at Fantastic Fest, and forms part of the lineup at this week’s Wales One World Film Festival.
Shot entirely in Wales by regular Welsh TV director Gareth Bryn, the film stars Dyfan Dwyfor (Pride) and newcomer Annes Elwy as Iwan and Sara, and Mark Lewis Jones (Child 44, Game of Thrones) as the mysterious Stanley.
The official synopsis from British Council Films reads:
When two young lovers crash their car into a ravine in the remote mountains of Wales, they are plunged into a lost world. Dragged from the river by a mysterious figure, they are taken to a ramshackle farm, a place untouched by time. As events unfold we learn the explosive truth about the young couple’s past. More unsettling still, we discover the ghostly truth about Stanley, and the tragedy of the valley he once called home.
The trailer showcases the same appreciative lensing of desolate, unforgiving wilds that won Bryn and writer Ed Talfan international acclaim for their BBC Wales series Hinterland.
The Passing (or Yr Ymadawiad, to give it its original Welsh title) will screen across Wales and selected other UK screens in April, including a recently-announced showing at Scotland’s Dead By Dawn festival.
