Presentation: The Burrowers
Saturday, Oct. 21 at 3 p.m. — The Mill | View Schedule
The Burrowers investigates the mystery of compulsive tunneling: from a London man who spends four decades excavating a labyrinth beneath his home for reasons he cannot describe; to the diggers of the subterranean tunnel-cities of Cappadocia; to a biologist who makes sprawling metal sculptures of ant nests.
