Van Diemen's Land (2009) DVD9
The true story of Alexander Pearce, Australia's most notorious convict who escaped from a penal settlement in Tasmania’s Macquarie Harbour in 1822.
Macquarie Harbour, a remote prison camp guarded by miles of impenetrable wilderness, was feared by convicts banished there as a fate worse than death. Sentenced to slave labour, a work party of eight Irish, English and Scottish thieves attempt the impossible in an infamous bid for freedom. Totally unprepared for the arduous journey ahead, their escape into the harsh Tasmanian wilderness becomes a futile battle between man and nature. As supplies dwindle and tensions amongst the group escalate, they soon contemplate the unthinkable.
They end up lost, angry and starved, leading them to awful acts of violence and cannibalism.
