Channel 4 - Random Acts: Damage Control

Embed Video
Top 6: November 11th 2020
A visceral short film exploring misconceptions and perspectives on race relations. Where every act of defiance is an act of 'Damage Control'. The film is about the role systemic racism plays in our daily lives and its effects on black people today. The five minute action comedy lays bare a fraction of the daily struggles, obstacles and systemic stereotypes imposed on Afro Caribbean cultures. Centred on real life experience, Abdou Cissé gives viewers insight into grappling with identity and growing up in systematically hostile environments. Offering an alternative point of view to promote understanding that racism is not a problem to be solved by black people. Posing a simple question: When will enough be enough? 'Damage Control' is an open conversation about the vehicles that allow systematic racial oppression and lack of accountability to exist. Following on from 2019’s award-winning, BIFA nominated film Serious Tingz Abdou Cisse further develops the ideas of his last film and takes his craft a step further, bringing it to TV via Channel 4's Random Acts.
