A FILM about a neglected artist will be shown in Cardigan later this month.

Theatr Mwldan Film Society will be showing Typist Artist Pirate King at Mwldan in January.

The film was released in 2022 and is directed by Carol Morley. It follows a non-conformist, forgotten artist on a last-ditch mission to get recognition for her talent by persuading her psychiatric nurse to take her on a road trip to Sunderland – where her story began – to visit an art gallery.

This story shows the growing friendship between the two women as they travel north, searching for endings and reconciliation, but there are a number of deviations into the past which could hinder their journey. It is a darkly comic but warm British drama which discusses mental illness in a sensitive way.

Theatr Mwldan Film Society will show Typist Artist Pirate King on January 28 at Mwldan. Tickets cost £8.40 or £7.70 or £5.90.
