The self-produced short doc is the first to join the collection of Present Plus Stories, born and bred from the Present Plus Film studio.
Fear is something we all experience, in this film we wanted to explore the beauty of fear through a singular portrait.
Fear Itself, is a short documentary following Simon Wheatcroft; a husband, a father and a blind ultra-marathon runner. The film provides a glimpse into the inner thoughts of an unusual life and is witness to beautiful moments of clarity and vulnerability. Born and bred in Doncaster we learn Simons innermost fears and how he deals with them in his everyday extraordinary ordinary life, in isolation of who we perceive him to be.
“The only thing to fear is fear itself” Franklin Roosevelt.
