Heart Valley follows a day in the life of Wilf Davies, 73, from Cellan, near Lampeter in Ceredigion.

Director Christian Cargill pitched the film to Mr Davies after reading a feature in the Guardian about his life and devotion to his flock of 70 sheep.

Mr Cargill said the farmer was "humbled" the film had been selected.

Mr Davies never leaves his home area in the Teifi Valley, works alone and eats the same meal of fish, baked beans, onions and a fried egg every evening.

Mr Cargill said he thought the film would resonate with people who experienced claustrophobia during lockdown.

"He is archetypically disconnected," he said. "He doesn't have a phone, he doesn't have the internet. It's almost a Victorian life he has.

"When we've been trapped in cities in our flats, everyone was desperate to leave and have space. He fully achieves that every single day and really appreciates that.

"He feels so much gratitude to life that he gets to be out in a field every single day, whatever the weather.

"I think that really relates to people that have struggled and felt trapped and claustrophobic over the last two years."
