Burton: Y Gyfrinach? [The Secret] (12A)

Wales/2011/76mins/12A/Welsh with English subtitles. Dir: Dylan Richards. With Richard Harrington, Dafydd Hywel.

A provocative drama that considers what might have occurred at a pivotal moment in the life of ‘60s superstar Richard Burton. Dylan Richards' intimate two-hander captures Burton and his elder brother, Ifor Jenkins, in the aftermath of a Swiss funeral. For Burton it was the chance to re-connect with the revered father figure who had become estranged following his love affair with Cleopatra co-star Elizabeth Taylor. For Jenkins it was a moment to reflect on the past and look ahead to the future. The awkward, booze-fuelled reunion was to climax in a shattering accident that left Ifor paralysed from the neck down.

We will be joined by director Dylan Richards following the screening on Friday 8 March.
