The Dig

New Zealand, 1994 (MIFF 1994, Youth Film Festival)

Director: Neil Pardington

A wonderful depiction of an older and younger family relationship. Who understands anyone in families? Who relates or understands anymore? Sometimes the least likely family member can tap into that special reality that other members simply can't.
