Spotlight on homegrown cinema
| 64 minutes | 2017
The unhealthy relationship between a young man and his grandfather sharing a seedy apartment. Flat-sharing becomes a real challenge when the all-important computer breaks down. For his debut feature, DeGiobbi — part of the emerging crop of fiercely auteur filmmakers from Nova Scotia, including Ashley McKenzie — portrays the stifling co-dependency between a young misfit and his perpetually skint grandfather.
