Directed by SADIE FROST and written by Johnny Cooke, this short film was shot entirely in lockdown and aims to bring about a sense of hope during a desolate period of time. 'We were so conscious of this being such a tough time for all the young people whose studies, early careers and passions were stopped in their flow. I wanted to make something that told their stories,' says Frost. Starring young London creatives Kelvin Bueno, Cora Corré, Bella Broekman-Tilbury, Rudy Albarn and LOVE 23 cover star, RAFFERTY LAW, the film captures the invisible toll lockdown and isolation can have, while showing that there is a light at the end of COVID-19-induced tunnel. We invited Sadie and Raff to interview eachother to celebrate the film's release.
