A new Welsh documentary website/collective Anywhere But Here have released their first film entitled Dave Datblygu: Death To Welsh Culture, It’s Meat and Tradition.
It’s a portrait of David R Edwards, the frontman and lyricist for Datblygu just as he releases his first book of poetry in English. The book “Dave Datblygu’s Search In English For The House Of Tolerance”, is a protest against the failings of Welsh language culture and an unflinching look at Dave’s life on the margins of society.
The film follows Dave as ‘wanders around his hometown of Carmarthen reading poetry and unleashing his cultural commentary in the form of a tirade of abuse. Stripped down, unpretentious and minimal Dave’s poetry deals with Welsh identity, unemployment, art, love and death all soaked in his unique style of dark humour.’
