Rebecca's Daughters is a 1992 British and German comedy adventure film about the Rebecca Riots, directed by Karl Francis.

The film was based on a story by Dylan Thomas. The screenplay was originally written in 1948 by Thomas; 44 years elapsed before it was finally made into a film, which is the longest period of this kind on record.[1] There is some evidence that Thomas' screenplay was derived in part from the riots that occurred in the village of Pontarddulais in south Wales.[2]
