Go Tell the Bees
Throughout September we screened Go Tell the Bees in grand castles and picturesque farms. Developed from four years of conversations, inspired by the 25th anniversary of the Sea Empress disaster and created by over 400 contributors in 30 locations, this is a film made by, with and for the people of Pembrokeshire.
We were so excited to share this experience in-person with you, and backdrops of golden sunsets made it even more special. We know many of you won’t have been able to make the journey to Pembrokeshire, so we’re chuffed to be able to share this project for you to watch in the comfort of your home for the whole of October. We recommend grabbing some snacks, cwtching up with your nearest and dearest and viewing the film full-screen. If you want a taste of the Pembs experience, you might also want to crack open a window to let the chill in!
Each of our screening events began with a live performance, a chance to explore the accompanying exhibition and an introduction from storyteller and myth-maker, Phil Okwedy. We have shared Phil’s speech, which we suggest watching ahead of the film.
Go Tell the Bees with Audio Description is also available.
Look back on photos from our live screenings, interviews with creators on our Go Tell the Bees project page and learn about Abi Sidebotham’s work on Sea Empress 25 – a direct source of inspiration for the film.
