Hoon Capital "The Colosseum of Dust"

25m Action, Documentary 2020

EPISODE THREE: “THE COLOSSEUM OF DUST”

HOON CAPITAL will redefine your perceptions of the hoon phenomenon, from MAD MAX fantasies at Bathurst, to the adrenalin fuelled back streets of suburbia where ordinary men do extraordinary things…

This 6 Part series is an analytical portrayal of V8 male behaviour. It has screened in other countries and was a hit in South Africa. Unfortunately due to a massive assault of negative publicity that was initiated by the TAC it remained unscreened in this country..until now.

SYNOPSIS: Once on top of the mountain there was central space called The Bullpit or The Doughie Pit. This was an expanse of dirt on the crest that became a literal colosseum where cars were ritualistically driven until they disintegrated then ultimately sacrificed to the car gods with the crowds cheering on. Not for the faint hearted.

This space later was modified by officials with deep trenches cut across in a chequered pattern aimed at deterring participants. All it did though was turn the larger area into 8 smaller Bull Pits.

Another strategy by officials to tame the same space was to provide large video screens with entertainment such as pornography and stage shows with strippers, totally missing the point. All failed.
