Angel Mine [1978]

A young and affluent couple become fatally entangled in their own wish-fulfilment world.

Set in Pakuranga, Auckland, the film explores the role of marriage: its realities, its fantasies, its humour and its tragedies.

Angel Mine is director David Blyth’s first feature film, for which he wrote the script as well.

Angel Mine explores the ways in which consumerism and materialism govern lives in middle class suburbia, and how this affects the dreams and fantasies of the film’s young protagonists.


Producers: David Blyth & Warren Sellers
