Arrowhead

Canada, 1993 (MIFF 1994, Fiction)

Director: Peter Lynch

Ostensibly tracing the steps of an amateur anthropologist Ray Bud as he takes us back to the site of his boyhood triumph - the finding of mastodon bones in the local park - Arrowhead is a mocking mockumentary, an adolescent's war against anonymity, and a pathetic but ultimately admirable attempt to leave his mark upon an indifferent environment.
