In Hell is a series of spoken-word performances to camera filmed in Sean Bonney’s apartment in Kreuzberg, Berlin by Bonney himself. About the series Bonney says, “The poems are from a sequence titled “Our Death”, which is loosely based on the impressions of a displaced British person watching Brexit from afar, and being troubled by entirely rational apocalyptic visions.”
