We hope to welcome director Dylan Richards to this screening.
A provocative drama that considers what might have occurred at a pivotal moment in the life of ‘60s superstar Richard Burton, Dylan Richards’ intimate two-hander captures Burton and his elder brother, Ifor Jenkins, in the aftermath of a Swiss funeral. For Burton it was the chance to re-connect with the revered father figure who had become estranged following his love affair with CLEOPATRA co-star Elizabeth Taylor. For Jenkins it was a moment to reflect on the past and look ahead to the future. The awkward, booze-fuelled reunion was to climax in a shattering accident that left Ifor paralysed from the neck down. Richard Harrington and Dafydd Hywel soak the screen in Welsh melancholy and familial angst; Richards and writer Wil Roberts dare to suggest a plausible cause for an incident that was to haunt Burton for the rest of his days. Commissioned for Welsh TV, BURTON: THE SECRET? receives its English theatrical premiere at CFF.
