Bear's Den
'Hiding Bottles'
13 August 2019 4 mins 05s

British folk-rockers Bear's Den get serious on their latest single from 2019 album 'So that you might hear me'. Addressing the issue of alcohol abuse and its effect on families, 'Hiding Bottles' explores timelines coming together and diverging - mixing events that did happen, could happen, and didn't take place at all.

It's an unusual approach to take, considering the majority of artistic work in this vein addresses substance abuse in a more immediate way, focusing on the addict themselves. To see the tables turned makes for thought provoking viewing, as do the provided statistics about how many people are affected by another's addiction.

The facts are given additional heft by the nuanced performances of the film's cast, as director Rollo Hollins gives the viewer enough room to ponder just how much of what we're seeing is real and how much is fantasy. By raising awareness of Al-Anon resources, one can only hope breaking the cycle of addiction becomes a reality for more families in need.
