STRAYS
 

WRITER & DIRECTOR / UK / 3 MINS / 2017

A dark and unsettling world in which children have taken over a forgotten terraced street, devoid of adults with no rules or boundaries.

Strays was commissioned for Random Acts, the short form film strand by Channel 4, showcasing the world’s boldest and most innovative creative shorts. The film has screened around the world, with official selections at prestigious BAFTA and Oscar® qualifying festivals, as well as recently being acquired for broadcast in series 4 of Random Acts.

"A genuinely unsettling piece. Strays has no time for apology, which makes it the best kind of terrifying."

Channel 4

"Inspired by a demolished street in his hometown, Dunleavy’s unsettling dystopian vision is chilling and challenging."

Random Acts
