Shia LaBeouf (b. 1986) is an American film star known for major Hollywood productions and indie films alike. R&A Shorts presents #TAKEMEANYWHERE, a film by performance art group LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner. The trio was founded in 2014 and has been dubbed by Dazed magazine as “a multi-platform meditation on celebrity and vulnerability.” The documentary project follows the three artists – who share their GPS coordinates with the Internet – as they hitch rides on a month-long journey across North America. LaBeouf made his breakthrough as the male lead in the Transformers (2007) franchise and has since worked with renowned directors such as Steven Spielberg (Indiana Jones and the Empire of the Crystal Skull, 2008), Lars von Trier (Nymphomaniac, HIFF 2014) and Andrea Arnold (American Honey, 2016).
