This is a bilingual (Welsh/English) fundraising film produced by Chocolate Films for Art Fund. The organisation sought to raise £18,000 in small donations to restore an iconic piece of sculpture by acclaimed artist Garth Evans. The piece had been moved from Cardiff to Leicestershire in 1972, where it was hidden and neglected for over forty years. The campaign was a great success and exceeded the target amount.
Bridging the past
We have a long term relationship with Art Fund, regularly making fundraising films for the Art Happens campaign. For this project we filmed new footage in Cardiff and combined it with archive photographs of the work and audio interviews from the early 70s.
