Event description
Genre-fluid Sydney artist Suburban's 2018 battle with bipolar, insomnia and alcoholism sparks big screen debut with accompanying soundtrack.

About this event

Adventure Cat Records presents [S]LEEP [A]LL [D]AY, [F]EAST [U]PON [N]IGHT: A Haus Party production of a Suburban film.

On July 1st, genre-fluid Sydney artist Suburban brings his battle with bipolar, insomnia, alcoholism and suicide to the big screen that, in 2018, landed him in hospital and a mental ward. It ignited a desire to be as open as possible with his art, and to work on changing the narrative around mental health from "how can we cope" to "how can we utilise".

The film's day-in-the-life premise condenses a 6+ month battle that started with wrongly-prescribed medication, accelerated through insomnia and faux-armoured mania, and crashed into a crippling depression with suicidal thoughts. Each song within the soundtrack was written during these stages and provides an honest insight into the mind's tendency to snowball and attack itself during depression, as well as the manic feeling it evokes of invincibility, hurtling into substance-abuse and reckless behaviour.

Premiering at Dendy Cinemas Newtown on July 22nd, as well as live on YouTube, Suburban will be accompanied by former NRL player and proud Wiradjuri man Joe Williams and his organisation The Enemy Within to speak about mental health struggle and generational trauma within First Nations communities in Australia. A donation to The Enemy Within is possible on the ticket site, and all profits from the premiere will go directly to this cause.
