A film created by two Bangor University graduates, telling the story of the drowning of the Gwynedd village of Capel Celyn in the 1960s, has won a BAFTA Cymru award in the Short Film category. 

The Welshman is a  documentary about the life of Owain Williams, one of the founders of Mudiad Amddiffyn Cymru (the Movement for the Defence of Wales), who was convicted 
for planting an explosive device on the site of the Tryweryn reservoir. The film was created 
by Bangor University graduates, director Lindsay Walker and producer Enlli Fychan Owain, who is Owain Williams’ daughter.

“My studies at Bangor University really helped me be pro-active, the biggest thing it taught me was the beauty in collaboration. It enabled me to explore my creativity and gave me stepping stones into the industry.  

 “I am absolutely over the moon that my most recent film The Welshman has won 
a BAFTA! Being at University also taught me how to be resourceful - I made The Welshman with zero budget and that is definitely a skill I mastered with my peers at Bangor.“

Enlli Fychan Owain Producer 
“I enjoyed Creative Studies because it gave me the opportunity to try out a few different elements that all related to my interest in media. I learnt a lot about PR and this really helped us promote The Welshman on social media, with over 25,000 views in 2 days, the film trailer almost went viral!”
