Pandemonium - The Convict Film Experience
As part of the overall Unshackled - Hobart Penitentiary experience, immerse yourself in the chaos of convict life in Van Dieman's Land through the world-class multisensory film experience 'Pandemonium'. Hear the stories, feel the emotions, and walk the footsteps of the wretched souls who passed through here. The Hobart Penitentiary, was the dark heart of the convict system in Tasmania. Behind the high, imposing walls, over 40,000 men ate, prayed, slept and were punished. ‘Pandemonium – The Convict Film Experience’ is an immersive audio-visual experience projected four metres tall onto the walls within the original Penitentiary Chapel where the convicts actually sat. The film contextually connects the convict sites around the state, and explores the journey – from conviction, to transportation and beyond – of our convict ancestors.
