Van Diemen’s Land ne spune despre povestea adevarata a lui Alexander Pearce, cel mai cautat delicvent din Australia. In 1822, Pearce si alti sapte condamnati scapa din Macquarie Harbour, un loc unde pedepsele sunt maxime si insuportabile, si fug spre un loc mai “linistit”…  salbaticia din Australia.


Van Diemen’s Land este scris si regizat de regizorul de origine tasmaniana Jonathan Auf Der Heide (Hell’s Gates) iar filmarile au avut loc in Tasmania, anul trecut, si este finalizat. Van Diemen’s Land a fost vandut la Cannes si va apare pentru prima oara la festivalele de film la sfarsitul anului.



Van Diemen’s Land tells the true story of Alexander Pearce, Australia’s most notorious convict. In 1822, Pearce and seven convicts escaped from Macquarie Harbour, a place of ultra banishment and punishment, only to find a world less forgiving… the Australian wilderness. “Abandon all hope you who enter.”

Van Diemen’s Land is both written and directed by first-time Tasmanian filmmaker Jonathan Auf Der Heide, of only a short called Hell’s Gates. The film was shot in Tasmania last year and is already completed. Van Diemen’s Land is currently being sold at Cannes and will likely show at film festivals later this year.
