Connecting with the production of a well-known chewing gum in Plymouth, Chew Chew presents a selection of chewing gum adverts, reclassified and arranged within Roger Manvell’s abbreviated version of the Hollywood’s Hay’s Code, creating a short film with a sexually charged perspective, hinting to our obsession with restriction and biased gender views on promiscuity.

Commissioned by Gordon Dalton for Plymouth Art Weekender supported by Arts Council England and Plymouth City Council.
