Helena manager of flamboyant suburban heavy metal "vampire" band has great expectations for their sucess. Helena wants them to bigger than Kiss, but struggles to reconcile her dreams for their stardom with the harsh realities of organising a group of undisciplined lads.

Through insight into their family relationships and their everyday lives of the band and their fans we see how their ritualistic, excessive music is rooted to their suburban roots. 

Hear No Evil  weaves these characters' stories in a hybrid of observational and direct camera styles highlighting the interplay between reality and fantasy.


"It's an engaging cinema-verite style documentary about a world of young dreams and extremes"
Pick of the Day - Adelaide Advertiser

"Hear No Evil never allows its main players to lapse into Spinal Tap like caricature...A little Gem"
