Rite of Passage

Rite of Passage features multi-award winning Australian producer, reporter and cameraman, Tim Noonan, who embarks on a journey of self-discovery as he tries to unlock what it means to be a man. In this 12-part documentary series, Noonan seeks out communities in the world's harshest locales, immersing himself in the culture, and participating in the extreme rituals that define the transition to manhood. Noonan finds himself taming a wild bucking bronco, amongst the anaconda infested plains of Venezuela, bonding with tribesman of the Siberian Tundra, venturing out on a dangerous crocodile hunt on the Bijagós Islands of Guinea Bissau, and in Cameroon, West Africa, crawling headfirst into the lair of a giant rock python to wrestle the monster snake from its den. Ultimately he discovers that no matter where we are, there are common themes to which we can all relate. "Rite of Passage" is produced by Seven Productions, a division of The Seven Network in Australia.
