Sleep Furiously wins Guardian film accolade
A documentary focusing on the landscape and community of mid Wales village Trefeurig has beaten the likes of District 9, Katalin Varga and Synecdoche, New York to win the Guardian First Film award.
Sleep Furiously, directed by Gideon Koppel, was funded by the UK Film Council and the Film Agency for Wales. As the Western Mail reported, Koppel said of his win: "I am absolutely delighted. I think that there is a great pleasure that cinema of a more lyrical and poetic nature still has a place and can still compete with big budget, more digestible forms of work."
