Our heroes, our poetic tradition – they have been our war correspondents, our lobbyists, our gossip columnists. Philosophers, sooth-sayers, rogues, the poets told us all about ourselves, and continue to do so – even 1400 years after Aneirin penned Y Gododdin the enduring themes continue to strike a chord in 21st Century Wales. It is director Marc Evans that takes us on this 2000 year odyssey with the help of a myriad of Welsh talent, including Ioan Gruffudd, Matthew Rhys, Rhys Ifans, Cerys Matthews and John Cale to name a few. Told in seven verses, this feature length documentary is as insightful as it is beautiful.
