A Spellbinding and Captivating Film Experience
Between 1806 and 1946, 221 people were hanged in Van Diemen’s Land.
The Penitentiary Chapel Site, shortened by inmates to ‘the Tench’, was the dark heart of the convict system in Tasmania. Behind these walls, 55,000 men ate, prayed, slept and were punished.
‘Pandemonium’ the film, is an immersive audio-visual experience within the original Penitentiary Chapel where convicts actually sat.
