After it’s Fringe screening, in the river (shuddering) goes on to feature in Frieze magazine. Check out the article here:

An excerpt appears below:

“Making visible the beauty of queer networks of support, as well as their constraining conditions, also motivated Rob Hesp’s short film in the river (shuddering) (2020), which premiered as part of the Queer Pandemic Response programme of London’s Fringe! Queer Film and Arts Festin November. Hesp tells me that the work originated in ‘the feeling of falling, being unable to orient or find any kind of bearing to navigate with’. Shot on Walthamstow Marshes in northeast London, the film shows ten bodies slowly falling into damp grass and gently, hypnotically, rising together. Their movements are so subtly co-ordinated that it is only in retrospect you realize they have remained two metres apart throughout.”
