Hunter: For the Record
Hunter: For the Record

Perth musician Robert Hunter was the pioneer of a musical genre, a young father, an avid digital enthusiast, ex drug and alcohol abuser, and also a terminal cancer patient.

When Hunter found out at age 35 that his time left on earth was in danger of being cut short, he decided to use the digital tools at his disposal to share his physical, emotional and musical journey.

The story of his battle to survive, and his eventual death, is told primarily by Hunter himself in a very public, raw and honest way.

For Hunter, cancer would become a lens through which the important things in life would come sharply into focus. Driven to share his realisations, both with his son in powerful video diaries and with the world around him, the music community he helped to build would also come out in force to support him in surprising ways.

This exclusive screening will feature a live performance by DJ Defyre followed by a post-screening Q&A facilitated by John Macliver (Cut & Paste) with Alice Ross (Periscope Pictures), Bias B (Emcee/ Obese Records), Mortar (Emcee/ SBX), Defyre (Emcee & DJ/ SBX) and Kai (Executive Producer).

Patrons are advised to arrive early as the session will start promptly at 4pm.
