Between 1803 and 1853, around 60,000 male convicts were sent to Van Diemen’s Land. Most of them were processed at the Hobart Penitentiary. The Pandemonium tells their story projected 21 metres wide and 4 metres in height on the walls of John Lee Archer’s Penitentiary Chapel. Meet a line-up of buz-coves, bit-fakers, nibblers and other motley lags in this luscious evocation of Cinerama.
