Sheepshagger
Sheepshagger portrays a lost generation of Welsh youth who struggle with identity in post-industrial Wales. Against a backdrop of high unemployment, decline of national traditions, and economic depression, Griffith’s protagonist, Ianto, and his friends turn to drink, drugs, and savage violence in an attempt to create meaning in their lives, lives left empty by lack of opportunities to work, belong and care. A heartbreaking, but ultimately powerful characterisation of an oppressed country trying to find a new voice in modern times.
