Festival de Cannes 1988: In Competition.

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 travellers must negotiate the terrors of a strange new world, (motorways, nuclear submarines) - while seeking to save their own.

Nominated for the Palme d’Or at Cannes , The Navigator also scooped the gongs at the 1988 AFI and 1989 NZ Film & TV Awards.
