‘And I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer’.
– Revelation 6:12.
Conquest tells the story of Eadric The Wild’s rebellion and guerrilla warfare campaign against William The Conqueror’s brutal regime.
Beginning at the Battle Of Hastings and the English defeat to the invading Normans, it follows Eadric’s rise to power as a guerilla leader and freedom fighter who eventually raises the might of an Anglo-Welsh army to lead against William The Bastard, Conquering king of England.
Conquest is a bold, brutal and highly original commercial movie, part Samurai film, part revisionist Western, and part war movie. Eadric’s rise to power offers the audience an intense, savage journey played across the psycho-geography of a terrible and barbaric infant Britain. It deals with the very human notions of freedom and hope pitched against oppression, slavery and conflict.
Conquest is being developed with the support of Ffilm Cymru Wales and National Lottery Funding.
