Forest Coal Pit

Two elderly, bachelor brothers live together on a small farm in Forest Coal Pit, South Wales. This super 8mm portrait explores the mundanity, vibrancy and intimacy of their relationship and the hyperlocal world in which they live. As they feed their livestock, tend to their garden and scrap cars, the brothers discuss elephants in China, lobster fishermen, ghosts and each other.

Forest Coal Pit was produced through Ffilm Cymru Wales & BFI NETWORK in association with BBC Cymru Wales.
