    • Synopsis
    • In 1939, just prior to the outbreak of war, the art collection of the National Gallery in London was secretly transported to caves in Wales for safe keeping. ‘Moving Pictures’ is a gentle comedy about a small Welsh village suddenly blessed with the presence of the nation’s art treasures and the joy and troubles it brings to the mundane lives of its residents. A film full of wonder and innocence which unites two different cultures in difficult times, the events that take place have remained a precious secret with the Welsh village people for over sixty years... until now!
