Do you love me? Yes, he said, and then...
A colourful musical journey into the narrative of a woman's tangled past, with magical glimpses of her present world and hopes for a liberated future.
Made in 2007, Yalda is part of The City Speaks, an innovative collaborative project developed by Film London Artists' Moving Image Network and BBC Radio Drama. Artist film-makers and writers, collaborating with acclaimed author Peter Ackroyd, composer David Pickvance and specialist sound engineers, were commissioned to create 2 x 45 minute collaborative audio visual artworks to form a centre-piece of the BBC Radio 4 season in 2008, celebrating London as a cosmopolitan city.
