From filmmaker, artist and musician Terence Nance (An Oversimplification of Her Beauty), comes Random Acts of Flyness℠, a fresh subversive look at contemporary American life. Available for Digital Download October 8, the six-episode series weaves together a number of themes, including family, history, death, tech, relationships and more.
Random Acts of Flyness “is like almost nothing you’ve seen on TV before” (The New York Times), intermixing live-action shots with animation, stop-motion and music. Showing assorted vignettes with an ensemble cast of emerging and established talent, the HBO® series creates a though-provoking and visually unique experience that is “passionately inventive” (New Yorker).
