‘It’s very exciting to know that hundreds of thousands of cinema goers will be enjoying the Glastonbury movie as well as viewing our images on the big screen. Our archive is unique in that it tells a radical history of the last decade, so we are not surprised that the Glastonbury moviemakers came to Swansea to look at our archive. We can’t wait to see the movie.’
