Sleep Furiously DVD

Sleep Furiously is a documentary set in Trefeurig, a hill-farming community in mid Wales. It is a landscape that is changing rapidly as small-scale agriculture, which characterised the area, is disappearing and the last generation who inhabited a pre-mechanised world is dying out. What was once a community cut off from the world has now learned to adapt to modern times: the quad bike has replaced the pony; the mobile phone has spared people the need to shout across the valley; and exotic creatures like llama are starting to make a claim for residency, alongside sheep. Some of the old traditions and values remain: perhaps most noticeable is the sense of rhythm and pace to life and the strong sense of community amongst the inhabitants.

The bond between people has perhaps grown out of the centuries of hardship endured by the farmers and miners who struggled to survive in the austere and isolated landscape. And perhaps it is also a response to that adversity which has generated an extraordinary sense of humanity which typically teeters between the tragic and the comic.
