Movie ~ The Big Dig

In the summer of 1984 Henri Robideau, Jeannie Kamins and their eight year old son Frank, drove across Canada on the most ambitious Gianthropological Dig ever conducted, photographing and shooting video of their adventure.

Two decades later Frank, having become a film maker, revisited the Big Dig video footage and created this epic short. In voice-over commentary Professor Robideau describes the Giant Things they encountered as well as the fundamentals of the Pancanadienne Gianthropological Survey.

Produced in 2003 with the generous support of  the Canada Council for the Arts.

Colour version, 9 minutes.
