Ffatti Films releases Dan y Wenallt - Kevin Allen’s radically surreal and erotic Welsh language film of Dylan Thomas’s ‘Under Milk Wood.’
Starring Rhys Ifans and Charlotte Church, and directed by Kevin Allen (Twin Town), Dan y Wenallt is the first cinema production of Dylan Thomas’s brilliant, haunting radio play since Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton’s 1972 film.

Adapted by T. James Jones, with a screenplay written by Murray Lachlan Young, Michael Breen and Kevin Allen, Dan y Wenallt veers away from the traditional, literal reflection of Thomas’ original work and instead explores some of the more visceral elements of the funny, filthily fluid and magical dreamscape of the work whilst staying faithful to Dylan Thomas’s original text.

“I was determined to craft a cinematic rendition that challenged the common perception; that poetry should remain in the domain of the reader or listener.” Kevin Allen, Director

The UK will be represented in the Foreign Language category this year by Kevin Allen's Under Milk Wood.
