Hero image for Suni Man

Suni Man

Short Film (Full Length) – 2012

I raised the funding with the promise that the film could be used as an education resource in schools and community centres with kids getting pressured to join these sorts of gangs.
– Writer/director Hamish Mortland, The Manukau Courier, 1 May 2012
When I was going into character for Suni I'd think of people in my life I could relate to, and I'd think of a couple of my cousins who got into gangs and ended up in jail.
– Actor Beulah Koale in The Manukau Courier, 1 May 2012
It's good to know that I can lend a hand and if it helps kids realise that they can make good choices then I'm happy to be a part of it. But we've got to make a choice in our heads for ourselves on what we want to do. Once you do that, you can succeed.
