Y Mynydd Grug (The Heather Mountain)
The work of one of Wales' greatest story writers has been adapted into a full-length feature film. Y MYNYDD GRUG (The Heather Mountain) is based on Dr Kate Roberts' classic volume 'Te yn y Grug'.
The framework is a simple story: a year in the life of an 8 year old girl called Begw, who lives in a cottage on the quarry-mining uplands in Caernarfonshire, North Wales, at the turn of the century. From winter to winter, from snow to snow, Begw's experience of life deepens, and her imagination as a budding author matures. Coinciding with Begw's story, as a background to and underlying the whole film, is a portrait of the hard mountain people, the chapel-goers and the rough-necks, the whole close-knit community which struggles to live on the stark slopes of the Heather Mountain.
