Delight

“Balibar is great…and Wales looks lovely.”    Total Film

“…oozes onscreen chemistry… The directing, the cinematography, the script and the performances wonderfully convey the troubled Echo and the desperate Zac who are both trying to find meaning and love in each other.”  The Upcoming

“…intelligent, ambitious, and thought provoking.” Buzzmag.co.uk

“…nice to see a British indie director making films about things other than boozy stags and gangster scrags.”   Cine-Vue.com

Synopsis:

Stranded in a remote Welsh village, a former war photographer’s intense love affair with a younger man propels her into exorcising the ghosts of her past.

DELIGHT is the second in a trilogy of feature films by Gareth Jones exploring the connections between creativity and libido.

Having probed the terrors of writer’s block in DESIRE, Jones turns his attention to another creative impasse: the human cost of journalistic reportage.

Stranded in a remote Welsh village, a former war photographer’s intense love affair with a younger man propels her into exorcising the ghosts of her past.

Echo goes looking for her one-time lover and comrade-in-arms, only to fall into a passionate relationship with his son. But sexual abandon triggers the unravelling of a trauma she has long buried for the sake of her children, which now threatens to tear their lives apart. Can eros bring a healing of trauma, or merely its repetition?

Background: Filmed in Ceredigion, mid-Wales August 2012.  World première in competition at Moscow International Film Festival June 2013, nominated for the Golden St George.   UK Première Cambridge Film Festival.  Currently on UK release.
