Presented by Civic Theatre & Burn Gently Enterprises

Burn Gently is an exploration into the ins and outs of the Australian music industry, its growth, pressures, expectations and hardships, its success and failings; all through the lens of some of the most influential artists in Australian Hip Hop.

The project’s journey follows a life of dreams, opportunity and success, interviewing some of Australia’s most influential musicians including Suffa (Hilltop Hoods), 360, Bliss n Eso, Thundamentals, L-FRESH The LION, Baker Boy, Def Wish Cast, Mirrah, Genesis Owusu, Sampa The Great, Drapht, Urthboy more.

It also unapologetically addresses life’s failures, pressures and how we treat a creative mind in the lime-light.

How is it that such creativity, such talent, is still so riddled with misconceptions, stigmas, judgment and exploitation?

A cinematic piece that endorses engagement within the music industry, encourages and supports the next generation’s involvement in the creative arts, whilst also portraying a positive message that addresses diversity, equality, creativity and community.

Running time TBC
