3 Minute Wonder - Darwin's Originals
Monday, 9th to Thursday, 12th February
7:55pm to 8pm
3 Minute Wonder is a showcase for short films from new and upcoming directors on Channel4. They run each day Monday to Thursday, with the four films in the week linked thematically together. This week the subject is Charles Darwin. In a celebration of 150 years since the publication of the Origin of Species, 3MW presents four different films inspired by his life and work.
01 - What If?
What If? is a powerful examination of the direction that evolution has taken the human race in the 150 years since the publication of On the Origin of Species. Performed in a studio with musicians Gary Crosby and Peter Edwards, and contrasting views of city life with shots of the fast disappearing Arctic regions, the film asks what if we got it wrong?
02 - The Thinking Path
Filmed along the route that Darwin took his daily walk with his terrier, Polly, The Thinking Path speculates on the difficulty of squaring intellectual bravery with human compassion.
03 - Requiem For The Redhead?
Recent gene research has identified that the occurrence of red hair is caused by a single, mutated recessive gene. So what does that mean for future of the red-headed peoples of the world.
04 - Fit to Survive?
Stretching across the northern Pacific an estimated 100 million tons of rubbish, held in place by underwater currents, covers an area larger than the United States. This film asks what species will be fit to survive in the new environments we are creating.
