Channel 4 – Random Acts: Series 4 (2017) 1of6

Ch4 Random Acts Series 4 1of6

Channel 4’s late-night, post-pub serving of the world’s craziest and most creative short films returns for a fourth series, once more curated and hosted by Zawe Ashton. Featuring brand new talent and experimental work from more established names; the shorts are a heady mixture of music, animation, dance, visual art, spoken word and uncategorisable creative brilliance.

Part 1:
Monica Dolan battles a killer houseplant, poet Simon Armitage shares his final words, and Alex Bag leaves a big surprise in your adult diaper. Plus award-winning dance from Antoine Marc.

Part 2:
Caleb Femi smashes preconceptions, dancing meets architecture at the Barbican, there’s a disturbing kids-only dystopia in Aaron Dunleavy’s Strays, and trees fight back in a trippy animation.

Part 3:
Laura Marling catches comedian Tim Key’s eye, a performance poet has a stern word with her pelvis pal in Ode to a Fuckboi, and the #TeamIndus Indian space mission inspires dance from celebrated choreographer Hemabharathy Palani. Plus: find out exactly how to be rad.

Part 4:
Robert Sheehan is down and out in LA, Duncan Cowles flogs stock footage for cold hard cash, and we’re feeling thirsty in an animated post-apocalypse. And, in a single-take experiment, a Chelsea supporter enters frame left.

Part 5:
Alain de Botton explains how to recount your dreams. Plus: the greatest library you’ve never seen, a gruesome waking nightmare set in a circus, and mass movement from the Sadler’s Wells National Youth Dance Company.

Part 6:
Heather Phillipson’s love letter to her pet pooch. Non-binary gender conforming artist Depresstival battles a cardboard robot. A teenager finger-swipes her way into digital oblivion. Plus: a sexy doughnut that’s just asking to be eaten.
