Bertie Gilbert

Tuesday, 17 November

In this weeks episode I am speaking with Bertie Gilbert. Bertie is a writer and director based in London. He serves as a pioneer for a new wave of young filmmakers, and was recently classified as one of the 'Five New Wes Andersons' by Dazed. In 2016 he was also part of the Dazed 100, a 'definitive list of creatives shaping youth culture'. Bertie played my husband - and I his wife - for a web series in 2017, and so it was just lovely to see and speak to him all these years later about something we'd had no idea was a real common thread of familiarity and experience between us. Bertie's father, journalist Chris Gilbert, died of a brain tumour when Bertie was just 7. He has since been trying to not only navigate and seek his own sense of masculinity - and thus identity - but also, somewhat, society's. Bertie brings forward fascinating insights and perspectives that I was yet to hear, having been doing this podcast for a year, on what it is to be a fatherless son, how it can feel, and how that can manifest itself. We also speak on grief, finding role models, losing a father/parent at a young age, how a sudden death can result in a need to preserve time, and David Tennant's aftershave. Having only recently found a language to express how he feels in regards to his father, his death and his absence, it was a true gift to be able to sit with Bertie and both hear and explore his current and reasonably new understanding of it all.
