Georgis Grigorakis


101' - 2020 - Drama - Dialogue: Greek
Director: Georgis Grigorakis Composer: Michalis Moschoutis With: Vangelis Mourikis, Argyris Pandazaras, Sofia Kokkali

A slow burning contemporary Western about a native farmer who lives and works in a farmhouse in the heart of a mountain forest in Northern Greece. For years now, he has been fighting with an expanding industrial Monster digging up the forest, disturbing the lush flora and threatening his property. Yet, the greatest threat comes with the sudden arrival of his young son after a separation of twenty years. They turn into enemies under one roof. Father and son confront each other head-on, with nature as their only observer, a showdown that ultimately yields an unexpected redemption for both.

"The first feature by Greek director Georgis Grigorakis is a handsomely made picture that tells the story of a troubled father-son relationship set against a topical environmental and social backdrop. [...] Digger is one of the more accomplished films in recent Greek cinema." - Cineuropa
