‘Hunter: For the Record’ premieres at Luna
Hunter was the first Hip hop artist to be inducted into the prestigious WAMi Hall of Fame and was a founding member of Perth's seminal Syllabolix Crew (SBX).
"The fans believed it was a film that had to be made and gave us the push we needed to keep going, even when the usual funding options were exhausted. To be able to turn that modest budget into a feature documentary and give that back to them is a great feeling," says director Sam Field.
Never one to retreat from a battle, Hunter co-opted the digital tools at his disposal to broadcast his physical, emotional and musical journey with a brutal honesty. For Hunter the clarity and fulfilment he found through sobriety enabled him - despite incredible adversity - to do what many of us struggle to do in our normal lives: make the most of each day.
Featuring interviews with Australian Hip hop royalty including the Hilltop Hoods, Drapht, Urthboy, and Optamus (Downsyde), Hunter: For the Record showcases previously unseen interviews and live-footage of the Perth Hip hop pioneer.
