NZ Short Film Collection

One morning seven-year-old Mary discovers a burst pipe under the kitchen sink. Rather than dealing to the problem, the family ignore the leak, preferring to follow their banal daily lives, including their anticipation of a rugby game versus France that night.

A black comedy of surreal proportions, Water is a film about procrastination, denial and global warming. How one small problem, when ignored, can lead to disastrous consequences.

Most days Evan rides the bus all over town rather than face another day at school. He feels at home by himself, until one wet day he notices a slightly older, beautiful girl steal a wallet before jumping off the bus. Romy seems like the embodiment of everything he daydreams about: excitement, rebellion and sex. He is instantly fascinated and a tentative friendship emerges. Evan thinks he has found a companion that understands him, but he soon learns that he doesn’t understand Romy at all.
