New Zealand | 2018 | 65 min | English | Mitchell Hawkes

This powerful documentary follows the highs and lows of much-loved New Zealand music idol and actor Stan Walker, as he comes face to face with one of life’s biggest challenges. This feature follows Stan as he allows cameras to get up close and personal, to follow him for months as he battles serious health issues, with family by his side.

Stan is an intimate journey, beautifully captured by award-winning documentary makers Ruckus. It is a mixture of raw emotion, highs, lows, challenges and humour as we see his close bond with his mother, April, and his wider whanau.

“I like to use the best and worst parts of my life, and to turn them into something creative.” — Stan Walker
