Random Acts Of Flyness premieres


It’s a sketch show. It’s a magazine. The new late-night HBO series from Terence Nance paints the black experience with a canny, kaleidoscopic brush. Here, Terence explores themes like police brutality, and blackface, and the psychological impacts of white supremacy with short, creative montages and sketches.

It’s part video-art installation, part talk show, part dream anthology. It switches nimbly between documentary, animation, music and short film to try to capture a reality for which fiction and nonfiction alone are insufficient.

Fridays on HBO.
