MWLL (of a Fire Lifeless) is a film and soundtrack to South Wales.

The film is the final product of an extended passion project for Louis on which the works of Dylan Thomas, Idris Davies and R. S. Thomas can be heard, through samples of Richard Burton and Dylan Thomas himself and through an original poetry reading from Welsh actress Cate Lovett. The music of the project spans many sounds and influences, and features contributions from members of Squid, Minor Conflict, Bible Club, Shanty Le Hara, New Bristol Sinfonia and Welsh, Bristol-based, solo artist LEO.
