THE CUNNING MAN is a short film inspired by John Harries (1785-1839) a physician and ‘Cunning Man’ –a healer who uses folklore magic. The film tells the story of an elderly and mysterious farmer who drifts through the Welsh valleys collecting dead animals. Refusing the services of the local abattoir’s collector, what he has in store for these creatures is beyond anyone’s imagination. An enchanted tale in the face of callous greed.
THE CUNNING MAN launched on the festival circuit this year at the Fright Fest Film Festival and will be screening at over 20 more film festivals including the BIFA and BAFTA Qualifying Aesthetica, Underwire & Norwich Film Festivals. It has also won its first award the New Renaissance Film Festival’s Best Director award for Zoe Dobson
