The dump

Told over the space of a day and through the eyes of 11-year-old Utah, The Dump is a comedy/drama about a boy and the gradual bond he develops with his estranged dad Orlando, the sole employee at a tiny rubbish dump in rural New Zealand. 

The Dump featured at the 2012 Palm Springs International Festival of Short Films, the 2012 Dallas International Film Festival, the Nevada City Film Festival, the NZ International Film Festival, the Montreal Film Festival and the Wairoa Māori Film Festival.

This project was funded by the NZ Film Commission.
