The Adventures of Suzy Boon

The Adventures of
Suzy Boon

WINNER: Direct Selection Award,
from Seoul Web Fest

Locked up in prison hell in Brazil for failing to provide the correct visitor’s visa, Suzy Boon used to work in immigration in New Zealand.

After six years in a single cell, Suzy is moved in with the other inmates. She quickly finds life to be tough and filled with thugs, crazies, and perverts. While trying to make friends and stay alive, Suzy has to also dodge the dangerous – and perhaps sexual – advances of the Prison Warden all while avoiding the shanking attention of the prison’s self-proclaimed Queen Bee-tch: Carly Jackson from Perth.

Will Suzy survive her sentence? Will Suzy ever return back to Aotearoa? Will she ever eat Marmite again?

Suzy Boon creator Roberto Nascimento was a presenter at the inaugural NZ Web Fest in 2015. The first season of Roberto’s Sui Generis was a finalist at #NZWF17. Season 2 is also selected for #NZWF18.

The Adventures of Suzy Boon is selected for #NZWF18 in the NZ Narrative category, and will play in the screening programme Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.
