After premiering at NZIFF last year, Mark Hunt: The Fight of His Life is set to release in NZ cinemas on February 3. Directed by DEGANZ member Peter Brook Bell, this compelling documentary follows one of New Zealand’s sporting superstars, kickboxing and MMA fighter Mark Hunt, and his rags-to-riches story.
When making any documentary, trust between the subject and filmmaker is important. In an interview with Flicks, Peter explained that the biggest challenge of filming was building that trust between himself and Mark, so that he would open up on camera. Time that was well spent. Catch Mark Hunt: The Fight of His Life in theatres next month.
