For those who are already sick of cold and rain will find in the new movie Australia in 100 days the ideal antidote.
Lush green rainforests, glowing red earth and white sandy beaches whet the appetite for discovering the fifth continent.
Independent filmmakers Silke Schranz and Christian Wuestenberg travelled Australia in 100 days. 22000 kilometres in a camper, 2000 kilometres on foot. With no commercial bias, they show in spectacularly beautiful pictures all the things that were exciting, awe-inspiring and exotic.
Many Britons dream of holidays in Australia. The problem is the sheer vastness of the country. So where should you head to if you don’t have too much time? The film Australia in 100 days gives a detailed insight into all regions of Australia.
Schranz and Wuestenberg documented every day of their journey on camera.
“We had so many great experiences, we swam with giant turtles, climbed the highest mountain, flew in a water-plane to the whitest beaches on the planet and skimmed for Sapphires in the Outback”, says Schranz.
“Anyone can experience what we did and travel along the route in the film.”
The cinematic journey begins in Perth, follows the secluded west coast north to Darwin, goes through Alice Springs in the Red Centre, through to tropical Cairns, and from there heads south via Sydney and Melbourne round to Adelaide. The pair even made a detour to the pristine Tasmania.
The result is a good-humoured mix of personal experience, nature documentary and travel guide. Australia in 100 days abstains from using pathos. The impish and informative commentary gives this documentary its charm.
