A collaboration between CAT and the department of Film, Theatre and Television at Aberystwyth University, Power and Place is a documentary that explores the energy story of Wales, past and present. An inspiring insight into the growing sustainability movement in Wales Power and Place was produced for the Smithsonian festival in Washington DC 2008 where it was shown as part of CAT’s presentation to the American public on welsh culture and heritage. Power and Place premiered for the first time in the UK on friday. The film was shown in both it’s English and Welsh language versions to a diverse audience with a lively discussion and questions afterwards. Thanks go to Elan Closs Stephans, executive producer, and John Burgan, director, from Aberystwyth University whose valuable contributions helped this vision come to life. CAT are looking forward to further projects and collaborations in the future. Also look out for the distribution of the DVD from CAT soon.
As if to give credit to the ecological message of Power and Place the event also saw the arrival of a swarm of bees outside the Arts Centre who decided to hive on one of the picnic benches outside. A rare sight which we were all excited to witness.
