Pleasure Pill 2002 12

3 mins Wales Director. Helen Grace

Lying in bed beside a snoring husband who is unable to appreciate her middle-aged charms, Kath decides to broach the pills she has collected from the chemist. As the rare side effect she was warned of kicks in, she discovers a world of leeks and lamp posts ….

This is a 'Screen Gem' i.e. one of a collection of three minute productions featuring a range of debut film-makers and more experienced individuals working in a new genre or professional role, and made with the support of the National Lottery Fund through the Arts Council of Wales and the Film Council New Cinema Fund, Sgrîn and HTV.

National Screen and Sound Archive of Wales preserves and celebrates the sound and moving image heritage of Wales, making it accessible to a wide range of users for enjoyment and learning. Its film collection reflects every aspect of the nation’s social, cultural and working life across the 20th century, giving a fascinating insight into Welsh filmmaking, both amateur and professional
