The Pit (Oscar submission - feature)
All 4 Days


Streaming available all 4 days of week 1 (Jan. 6th-9th)

A neighbour's daughter, makes some contemptuous remarks about about his dead father, a ten year old boy decides to trick her and, after a long chase, manages to make her fall into a pit. The cruel lesson has severe repercussions throughout the village, and the only person who seems to understand the child and his fears is an old sailor who lives alone in a modest house, suffers from diabetes and has a mysterious past. Throughout the piece, the special bond between the boy and the sailor is explored with candour and sincerity, as they both start working on the completion of a particularly valuable stained-glass window. This is just the beginning of an intense emotional journey, which gradually gains depth and sensitivity.
