Sinopse Original Original Sinopsis

Um jovem lutando na guerra que já passou desperta de um sono potencialmente fatal para se deparar com o mundo como ele é agora – um lugar tenso e barulhento com ecos de seu próprio passado ecoando em seus ouvidos.

Sinopse Internacional Sinopsis

‘Hireth’ in old Cornish and ‘Hiraeth’ in Welsh means: Homesickness for a home to which you cannot return. An intense form of longing or nostalgia, wistfulness. The grief for the lost places of your past. Hireth is a film about the past and the present colliding with fatal consequences.

Mensagem do Realizador Director Statement
‘Hireth’ was written in ate 2020 and shot over two days during lockdown. It is a film about legacy, not of WW2 as a whole but of one ordinary man, ‘Will’. I decided to structure this film around the letters sent between ‘Will’ and his wife ‘Eve’, ending with his final letter sent posthumously. Reading so many of the letters written by soldiers to be sent to their families should the worst happen, I found them moving and full of desperate hope. The men always spoke of what they wished for for their families: they imagined bright futures and offered reassurances. Most strikingly poignant was the overwhelming sense that they wanted to come home. Last summer I saw the news coverage of protestors proudly wearing the poppy while giving the Nazi salute in the name of protecting statues of people most know nothing about. They used racist chants and attacked journalists, all the while regarding themselves as “patriots”. I found myself wondering how a veteran would view these events in his homeland and how he would re act when faced by the very ideology that he was sent off to fight.
