DEGNZ member and director Julia Parnells’ documentary, Six60: Till the Lights Go Out, about Aotearoa’s biggest band is now available on Blu-Ray, DVD & Digital. The documentary reveals Six60’s untold story of ambition and creative vulnerability.
“A tale of driving ambition & defying the critics.” – The Spinoff
From humble beginnings to becoming the first and only Kiwi act to headline New Zealand’s biggest stadium reserved for the world’s mega-stars, no musical act has ever garnered such a deep connection with fans as SIX60.
Arising from the rugby field to drop their music on Facebook, within a year SIX60 were winning awards and confounding the music industry with their unprecedented ascent. But reviewers scoffed, labelling their music ‘BBQ Reggae’ and ‘never quite brown enough sounds’. Criticism compounds on young male egos, putting the band on a collision course with each other.
When a Dunedin gig causes a life-changing injury, everything has to change as the band are forced to assess what they really stand for and if they even have the goods to succeed. Woven with stunning vision of their record-breaking stadium concert, a unique Kiwi sense of humour and never before seen vision of the band as students in Dunedin, the film reveals a group of men who must confront the true cost of never giving up.
