We made a film about swearing. About cursing, profanity and obscene language. About why we do it and what it can tell us about the culture in which we live.
It was made in collaboration with the creatively vulgar people at Tilt, the charmingly foul-mouthed Adam Woollard and Theo Marlow, and expletive-filled insight from Emma Byrne, Jean-Marc Dewaele, Melissa Mohr and Sean Burke.
Shorter versions of the four interview sections of the film are available here.
Melissa Mohr on the history of swearing
