Meal Tickets, the documentary about Perth rock band Screwtop Detonators and their one-time roadie Will Stoker, is having a special limited season screening at Luna Outdoor Cinemas from February 1-7 and Camelot Outdoor Cinema on February 8.
The highly-anticipated, critically-acclaimed, ten-years-in-the-making feature documentary directed by Perth filmmaker Mat de Koning is a cautionary tale of life in the world of modern day rock ‘n’ roll, and its realities versus its aspirations. De Koning has captured the rollercoaster journey of The Screwtop Detonators, their manager Dave Kavanagh (an ex-mentor to The Libertines) and their one-time roadie, Will Stoker. Whilst it focuses on WA-born acts, the themes have a very global relevance, with many lessons to be learned for those in the music industry, and a heck of a lot of fun to boot.
