Y Syrcas (The Circus)

When a Victorian travelling circus visits Tregaron in Ceredigion, they offer much more than entertainment for Sara, a young girl who is trapped by her grieving father’s strict rules and religion in a village steeped in superstition.

Director Kevin Allen (Twin Town) tells this heart-warming and often funny tale about the town’s relationship with the troupe and Jwmbi, an elephant who died and was reputedly laid to rest behind the town’s Talbot Hotel in 1848.

Film is in Welsh language with English subtitles. 97 minutes in length.

There were two screenings. Friday, 3:00 p.m. and Saturday, 1:00 p.m. Monsella AB.
