RTS Wales at the Carmarthen Bay Film Festival – “The Jones D-Trilogy: Gareth Jones in conversation with Euryn Ogwen”

Accomplished writer and director, Gareth Jones, has a career which spans four decades.  Born into a theatrical family, Jones first directed in London theatre in 1975, before moving into TV in the 1980s.  He started at HTV Wales, before later joining Granada to direct Coronation Street and other dramas, including Brass and Albion Market.  For the BBC he wrote Fighting Back and Shalom Salaam, which he also directed.  He then crossed over to feature films, first as director then also as author, for the acclaimed Trial of Klaus Barbie and Bonhoeffer – Die Letzte Stufe, ultimately setting up his own production company, Scenario Films, in 2006 with his partner, producer and composer Fiona Howe.

Gareth has recently completed his D-Trilogy, conceived seven years ago as a personal exploration of the creative/erotic psyche, through the domestic claustrophia of Desire (2009), to the wide Welsh landscapes of Delight (2013) and most recently the cloistered college precinct in Delirium (2016), starring Claire Grogan and Timothy West.  The trilogy delves into the inner workings of the creative urge in today’s fraught world through words, pictures and music.  While thematically and stylistically linked, the three films have entirely separate characters, narratives and locations.

In this session, Euryn Ogwen will discuss this exciting project with Gareth and take a look back over his long and distinguished career.

This event is part of the Carmarthen Bay Film Festival, which is being held at the Stradey Park Hotel & Spa on the 9th -12th May.  Further details can be found at www.carmarthenbayfilmfestival.co.uk
