Leaving Lenin (Gadael Lenin)
Three teachers and seven pupils from a Welsh school visit Russia on an educational fieldtrip, but while travelling on a sleeper train to St Petersburg the teenagers and their teachers are separated, opening up a whole world of opportunities for experimentation and self-discovery for the young travellers.
This ground-breaking Welsh-language film was directed by Endaf Emlyn in 1994, and features an early performance by Richard Harrington (Poldark, Hinterland).
“An engaging light comedy… the spirit of Czech comedy is never far away.” -Variety
