Medieval myth meets digital storytelling in these two new short films.

In the days before Britain had been named, they were the first to set foot on the island: sisters, refugees, wind-wracked and storm-weary, seeking a new land, new lives and new dreams. In two short films (New Island Dreams: Autumn and New Island Dreams: Winter) researcher and storyteller Stephe Harrop fuses medieval poetry with contemporary spoken-word performance, inviting you to step into the mythic story of the first queens of Albion. Each film also creates space for your own imagining of landscape and history, with prompts for flash fiction and storytelling activities to share with friends and loved ones. So you too can be part of the process of renewing our national dreaming...
