Dancing in Circles

A Film by Kim Strobl

Synopsis

DANCING IN CIRCLES is a relationship study that draws parallels to the folk story of Saint Dwynwen. The Welsh Patron Saint of Lovers ostracised herself after her Love betrayed her and now takes new form in Hannah.
Whilst fluidly transitioning between three time periods we learn about Hannah’s passionate youth and love for Aled until the break-down of their relationship. But when time reopens a wounded heart, can the ghosts of her past help her heal?
