Lemming Aid

New Zealand, 1994 (MIFF 1994, Environmental Programme)

Director: Grant Lahood

Human nature collides with Mother Nature - literally. On a clifftop somewhere in Scandinavia, a group of zealous activists prepare to take a stand. Their misguided mission: to stop a crazed horde of determined Lemmings from leaping into oblivion. Lemming Aid is an offbeat comedy about people who take their causes too seriously.
