TURNING POINTS AT THE LONDON 2012 FESTIVAL


Turning Points was a two year storytelling project that culminated in a short film featuring, among others, the voices of Hollywood legend Sir Roger Moore and Olympian Jamie Baulch. The films was screened in venues across Wales and England as part of the London 2012 Festival.


The film takes six stories discovered during the course of the Turning Points storytelling project and weaves them together so that they speak with one inspiring voice. Morgan Evans (pictured above) plays The Runner, a young boy who embodies the soul of the stories as he moves through a stunning Welsh landscape.


The film shows that whether you are famous, rich and celebrated, disabled, poor or struggling, moments that change our lives can leave people in a better and inspiring place.
