A film by Tyler Atkins
Filmed at iconic Byron Bay, against the canvas of Australia’s famous east coast surf beaches and rain forests, Bosch & Rockit is a raw and unapologetic exploration of unconscious parenting and the deeper themes of love, forgiveness and relationships.
Set in the late 1990s, before the era of smartphones and social media, Bosch & Rockit is a powerful story told through the eyes of a young teenage boy. As Rockit grapples to understand why his Mum’s not coming home, he embarks on a magical holiday with his father, Bosch, only to discover they’re actually running from the law.
While on the run, they struggle through unbelievable circumstances only armed with hope, courage, and determination. Bosch gives his all trying to protect his son. Rockit struggles to come to terms with the hand he has been dealt. Unable to attend school because of the ‘heat’ it would draw from the police and with no mother around to nurture him, Rockit turns to surfing and the life that is associated with it as a means of escape. Bosch can only run for so long and eventually his reality catches up with him.
Bosch & Rockit is a film that exposes the devastation that unconscious parenting and addiction can have on a family, it is a story that ultimately gives us hope that no matter what our circumstances are, we will find a way through.
Told through the eyes of a young boy, Bosch & Rockit is an incredible journey from boyhood to manhood.
Starring Luke Hemsworth, Rasmus King, Isabel Lucas & Leeanna Walsman
