Over the last couple of years we have curated a collection of films featuring some of our Bookcase writers, specially created for us by BAFTA award-winning film-maker, Sara Penrhyn Jones. Sara Penrhyn Jones is a past member of the Exchange team and knows our work well. She is currently at the Uummannaq Polar Institute in Greenland, engaging as part of a film project with international glaciologists to explore the ways in which glacial melt is measured, and the implications of climate change on local community and culture. Forthcoming author films, currently in production, will feature Gwyneth Lewis and Patrick McGuinness.
In addition to our films, we are also editing audio files featuring poets who participated in workshops organised by the Exchange for the Wales Arts International/British Council Writers' Chain project. Each poet talks about 'My work, my place, my times'. These were recorded on a river's side at the Gowry Arts Institute above Trivananthapuram in Kerala.
