Hang Time tableau


feature film

A new world wine term for the length of a vine’s growing season; the longer the grapes hang on the vine before harvest, the greater depth of flavour in the final wine.

Three childhood friends get some much-needed hang time when a cancelled wedding sees them spend a long weekend together on a secluded Marlborough vineyard… with all the wine intended for the wedding… and the former bride’s crazy uncle.

Inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s Fiesta; the Sun Also RisesHang Time is a wine-fuelled structured improv comedy for the new “lost generation”: Millennials.

Balancing “booze and bros” humour with candid character drama, this film is as real as it is ridiculous, proving once and for all that nothing helps heal a broken heart like good wine, good friends, and a bloody good time.
