Breuddwyd Merch Y Chwarel, The Quarry Woman's Dream, 2019: Installation, video – 23 mins. Shown as part of a whole room installation, Storiel April - September 2019.
Mae'r ffilm hon, sydd tua'r un faint â phennod o gyfres gomedi, yn fath ar daith bersonol - efallai yn synfyfyr, yn freuddwyd o ddyheu - i ganfod fod fy lle wedi'i gyfryngu gan fath ar 'linach y cartref' a chwareli llechi Dyffryn Peris. Mae'n archwilio swyddogaeth merched ym mympwy amser, gofod ac arferion cymdeithasol, a'r berthynas rhwng lle, iaith a diwylliant.
This film, roughly the length of an episode of a sitcom, is of a personal journey – perhaps a daydream, perhaps an aspirational dream - to find my place mediated by a kind of ‘house geneology’ and the slate quarries of Dyffryn Peris. It explores the role of women within the vagaries of time, space and social norms, and the relationship between place, language and culture.
