Session Seventeen: The Navigator

About This Project

A young boy is afflicted by apocalyptic visions in medieval Cumbria. Believing he is divinely inspired to save his village from the Black Death, he persuades a group of men to follow him into a tunnel. They dig deep into the earth and emerge … in Auckland, New Zealand, 1987. Following portents, the time travelers must negotiate the terrors of a strange new world, (motorways, nuclear submarines) — while seeking to save their own.

 

This short, intense picture is like a collaboration between William Golding and Gene Roddenberry, The Spire meets Star Trek, and is the work of someone with a distinctive talent and vision. Ward is an antipodean Werner Herzog. – Philip French, The Observer,
