Magdalena

A film produced by Jill Greenhalgh and Sara Penrhyn Jones.

Depicting the Magdalena Project in one film seems impossible, considering its historic and geographical spread, and its multilingual and evolving nature. Magdalena is a thirty minute documentary, created as a collaboration between Magdalena Founding Artistic Director, Jill Greenhalgh, and filmmaker Sara Penrhyn Jones. Using footage gathered by Sara from two Magdalena festivals in 2011 (Wales and Cuba), a story is woven, which historicises the project, and conveys something of the spirit which has kept the network relevant in a changing environment.
