Hiraeth by Buddug James Jones Collective

'Hiraeth' is a Welsh word with no direct translation. It is a mixture of homesickness and an intense form of longing or nostalgia. 

With live music and welsh cakes, Hiraeth explores the decline of Welsh tradition and identity through one woman's struggle to escape and let go. 

Desperate to leave, Bud wrestles with the knowledge that her departure sounds the death knell for the family farm. Leaving five generations of tradition behind her as she sets out alone into the big smoke... 

Created by Jesse Briton, Buddug James Jones and Max Mackintosh.
