Preview: Random Acts (Un)Fit to Work

Random Acts

The world’s best creative short films, from established names and new artistic talent.

This film, (Un)fit to Work, is set amid the 1980s, during the jobs market crisis of the Thatcher era and when HIV/AIDS was widespread. Nicholas, a disabled, unemployed mechanic, is unfairly denied the chance of applying for the job he’s best suited for, due to his disability. Frustrated, his imagination takes flight on a musical journey of singing and dancing, through disco and ballroom, giving a voice to his silenced, job-seeking peers, and calling for access and change.
