DC Premiere / Post-screening Q&A with Cast Member Matt Whelan
It’s 1965 and rock music is shaking up the world but not in New Zealand. Richard Davis is determined to break the Government’s monopoly on broadcasting and bring rock n’ roll to the younger generation, and at the same time hold onto the woman he loves. A pirate radio station is born (based on a true story).
The cast includes leading man Matt Whelan, (My Wedding and Other Secrets, and The Most Fun You Can Have Dying) who is supported by Dan Musgrove (Underbelly) and David Aston (Lord of The Rings, Underworld, The Matrix) as the Broadcasting Minister. Director Craig Newland says: You always hope when making a local film that it might appeal to an international audience, so I’m incredibly thankful the film has reached into the North American market ahead of our national release in March 2014 in such a positive way. It seems the festivals are reacting strongly to the untold true story.” Newland said
Best Narrative feature, Fargo Film Festival, 2013.
Lead Cast: Matt Whelan and Belinda Crawley
