Sleep Furiously (well) in Wales

Still from Sleep FuriouslyJust as we’re excited about the new additions to our collection of Welsh hotels, so there’s also a buzz around a new, equally Welsh film, Sleep Furiously.

Launched on the festival circuit last year, Gideon Koppel’s picture about the plight of farming in mid-Wales, where Koppel grew up, is a heartfelt documentary that has been impressing the critics. Yes, a subject matter that references the demise of small-scale agriculture and the legacy of the holocaust isn’t intended as light-hearted, but the film’s lauded cinematography and bleakly beautiful setting, just inland from Aberystwyth, is soul-stirring in a way reminiscent of touching French documentary, Etre et Avoir.
