The Hunting (2019)




Closer Productions (SA)

The Hunting intimately and dramatically imagines the lives of four teenagers, their teachers and their families throughout the lead up, revelation and aftermath of a nude teen photo scandal. When two high school teachers discover students are sharing explicit photos of their underage friends and peers online, the revelation has unbearable consequences for their students and their families. Tackling themes of misogyny, privacy, sexuality and sexualisation, online exploitation, masculinity and gender, the series uses this singular event as a way of exploring some of the most pressing issues of our time and offering a vital portrait of contemporary, multicultural Australia. Stars Sam Reid, Jessica De Gouw, Kavitha Anandasivam, Luca Sardelis, Alex Cusack, Yazeed Daher, Asher Keddie, Richard Roxburgh.
