3 Minute Wonder - Flatpack Stories
Monday, 27th April to Thursday, 7th May 2009
7:55pm to 8pm
3 Minute Wonder is a showcase for short films from new and upcoming writers and directors on Channel4. They run each day, usually from Monday to Thursday, with each week's films linked thematically. This time it's a two week theme of 7 films all about the nation's favourite Swedish religious cult.
IKEA is the Swedish shop that has become a British Institution. It's a love-hate relationship, full of flatpack furniture and fuelled by meatballs. 3 Minute Wonder discovers that there's more going on in the big blue and yellow shed than any weekend shopper would ever imagine.
01 - Saturday
A simple trip to buy a blind puts John and Fiona's relationship to the test. It's a tale that you'll see being replayed time and time and time again if you stop to watch the people in the big blue shed wander by.
02 - Sunday
Dave is a patient man. Dave's girlfriend isn't, and so it falls to him to struggle to make up the cabinet from flatpack for her Egyptian nick-nacks as she finds time to take it easy.
03 - Trolleys
Roger is a shepherd for the modern age. He and his van make trips all the time to retrieve shopping trolleys that have gone astray.
04 - Car park
Eileen sells candyfloss. She's one of those Ikea employees who help fuel the shoppers on their journey around the world pf Ikea. But what she's really doing was watching the car park: all life is there you know.
05 - Home From Home
God made Ikea. No, he really did...
06 - Lights Out
The customers have all gone, the meatballs have all been eaten. And now it's time for the ballet of the forklifts as the store prepares for another day.
07 - Passing Time
Mohammed is ninety-two years old. He recently lost his wife. He no longer knows what to do with his time. So he walks around the temple of IKEA to ease his loneliness.
