Chris Fowles Beautifully Captures the Complexity of Unexpected Fears

Hoi Polloi director cast a real couple to express the fear of discrimination, even without Covid for Pride In London

Chris Fowles Beautifully Captures the Complexity of Unexpected Fears

Chris Fowles directs the poignant spot ‘Hesitation’ for PrideInLondon. Pride In London described the spot as as “very powerful and beautifully created.”

The film was shot in one evening in South London, with a small crew and under Covid-19 rules. Against the backdrop of the London skyline, what at first seems like two friends discussing lockdown, turns out to be something very different. The project started as a personal project for the director Chris, about life after lockdown, exploring multiple characters and how life has changed. The cast - Molly and Clare - are a real couple. This is their first same-sex relationship and it's only a few months old.  

The aim was not to make something loud or in-your-face, but a real representation of the kind of conversations that are happening right now. Busy places they used to love like bars and parks had suddenly become intimidating even without Covid. The fear of discrimination and its consequences can come through in small ways. And right now that is ever more complex to express and navigate.
