A child is digging the ground, the spade is scratching on concrete, notes in a diary about the weather, a recipe for a birthday cake, an empty house.
Drops of water. What remains from life? An attempted dialogue between yesterday and today – between my grandmother and myself.
DIGGIN' THE GARDEN is a poetical and experimental short documentary, dealing with existential questions in life: what remains when you are gone? To whom are you talking to, if the other person - the grandmother - has left.
All that remains, is an empty house full of memories, showing traces of a rich family life.
Relics of the age next to the ones of the youth.
A dialogue between my grandmothers diary and my own written words.
Between the spade that is scratching on concrete and drops of water.
Between life and death.
