Written by Grigorakis and with the story credited to him, Maria Votti and Vangelis Mourikis, who also stars along with Argyris Pandazaras and Sofia Kokkali, Digger is a contemporary western about a native farmer who lives and works alone in a farmhouse in the heart of a mountain forest in Northern Greece. For years now, he has been fighting against 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 20-year separation. 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.
“Our heroes’ relationship as adversaries becomes a vehicle for reflection on contemporary Greek society and its machismo. It’s a society torn apart by a profound identity crisis as capitalism marches on,” says Grigorakis.
Lensed by Giorgos Karvelas and edited by Thodoris Armaos, Digger is a co-production between Greek companies Haos Film, Faliro House Productions and Blonde, France's Le Bureau, Germany’s Match Factory Productions and FassB Filmproduktion, and US company N-Coded Pictures. The Match Factory handles the international rights.
