Jonathan Ogilvie's semi-autobiographical music drama, HEAD SOUTH, is set in 1979, the underground post-punk music scene of Christchurch. New Zealand.

The film draws in Angus, a schoolboy fantasist, who must confront self-doubt, the derision of his friends and a family tragedy to acquire an appreciation of true character.

During a fortnight with his world-weary father, Angus is drawn to the underground post-punk music scene. With the support of his friend Kirsten, Angus takes the stage for the first time.


The film features music from the period including Toy Love, The Slits, Public Image Ltd, Magazine, The Scavengers, Wire and Lou Reed. Shayne Carter (Straitjacket Fits, Dimmer) is the film’s music composer.
