“He Don’t Need No Permit!”

Screening at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, DIG is a short film about the distinct lack of liberty those in the U.S. and wider Western world naively believe they still have.

A man digs a hole in his own back yard to release his frustrations at the world, harming no one in the process, and ends up being kidnapped by the state for daring to do so without a permit, much to his bewildered young daughter’s dismay.

The innocent, uncluttered young minds of the observing children contrast vividly with those of the fearful & conditioned ‘grown’ adults and with the all too familiar whirring eye in the sky soon hovering above, it’s not long before two animated uniforms “just doing their job” arrive to arrest the man for his troubles.
