Why Wait

by Syd Briscoe


Lilla Vargen: “Why Wait” - 3 mins 41s

Northern Irish singer Lilla Vargen draws attention to her home country's housing crisis with this poignant promo for 'Why Wait'. Directed by T J O'Grady Peyton, the film offers snapshots of homeless life in Ireland - community, camaraderie, and isolation by turns.

Urban decay is beautifully shot here, with empty buildings given a wistful feel - whispering to the history of what they once were. Loving relationships are shown between the shots of protests, bonfires, and ruminating on regrets, suggesting that no matter the dire circumstances, people will always take care of each other.
