RAISING THE HARE TO BE SCREENED AT NATURE MATTERS 2019: TIME FOR NATURE

I am excited to announce that Raising the Hare will be shown as part of Nature Matters 2019: Time for Nature on Saturday 2nd November in York.

To mark this screening the film has been re-worked with new footage.

"I thought I could almost see myself in the hare’s eye, it was that close.”

The film looks at the entanglement of encounter between a hare, a farmer and the livestock that coexist within a field.

The film features two Welsh voices of the landscape - the musician John Cale (founding member of the Velvet Underground) who reads Seamus Heaney's translation of ‘The Names of the Hare’ and the artist Paul Emmanuel (Welsh Artist of the Year) who describes an encounter he had with a hare from horseback.
