A feature film written and directed by Morgan Lewis aka Morganics.


Released early from jail, Aboriginal MC, Swerve (Wire MC) attempts to reunite with his girlfriend, emerging young dancer, Rosa (Demi Sorono). While he was in lockup, Swerve’s best mate Fury (Morganics) has spiralled into homelessness and drug addiction, scoring from Swerve’s rival, DJ Rich (Bboy Jay). Now their rivalry comes to a head when Swerve discovers that Rose has been rehearsing with DJ Rich to host his upcoming all star Hip Hop jam.


Written and directed by Australian hip hop legend Morganics, Survival Tactics is based on the critically acclaimed original Hip Hop Theatre production which sold out a national tour culminating in standing ovations at The Sydney Opera House in 2007.  The film features an all star cast of Australian hip hop artists including some of the freshest breakdancers, free runners, DJs, MCs, spoken word, graffiti and street artists in the country. Survival Tactics powerful journey through the struggles of the urban metropolis is Australia’s first ever Hip Hop feature film.
