Fear/Love: A Tale of Identity, Fear and Self-Destruction

Fear/Love: A Tale of Identity, Fear and Self-Destruction

Fear/Love is  a new short film directed by the veteran English street artist and urban videographer Rob Chiu, aka The Ronin.  The film was made in collaboration with an urban youth program called the I Care Revolution, which encompasses a multitude of talented artists working together to empower young people to make a difference in the lives of others.

Set against the harsh backdrop of inner city London, Fear/Love interweaves the lives of three adolescents who never really meet each other, but whose actions intersect and interpenetrate as they struggle with who they are, who they want to be and who they are becoming.  Their lives enact the central quest for the ever-evasive heuristic sense of identity, whether that means not knowing your identity, being ashamed of who you are, trying to become someone else or looking for acceptance.

Their intertwining journeys take them down paths mixing visions of potential identity with yearnings for love, wishes for intimacy that are inevitably thwarted by their fears of others.  Ultimately, decadent overindulgence gives rise to self-destructive acts, leading up to a horrible event.
