Mockumentary examining the life of controversial Welsh poet Brendan Pendry, an underrated genius and contemporary of Dylan Thomas.

Co-writer and star Sean Carlsen says: "I have always been a huge admirer of Dylan Thomas's work, and upon the centenary I thought it would be a good idea to put together a 'mockumentary' doing for poetry what Spinal Tap did for rock and roll. We want to honour his life with humour, something I really think he would have enjoyed.

"Although it's a spoof, the film is an affectionate tribute and specific shots from the film are inspired by Dylan Thomas's work, photographs of him, and more. We hope people see that and enjoy what we've produced."
