» » Random Acts of Learning: The Robot (2018)

Short summary

A funny little experimental film that celebrates creativity and learning as an empowering process. A young boy playing as a robot struggles across the huge landscape of Ilkley moor. He's learning how to navigate the terrain in his physically restrictive outfit made from a large cardboard box. This juxtaposition of playful, imaginative act in a challenging environment parallels the current climate and space for the creative subjects in education. The 'robot' is caught in his moments of accomplishment, joy, effort and play. By stepping outside ourselves and using our imagination, we can lose ourselves in creative acts, they help us to express and cope with feelings, stimulate the imagination, to problem solve and help prepare for life.
