When a young couple decides on a camping holiday on a remote island on the Great Barrier Reef, the last thing they expect to find is company – especially this kind of company.
Harry and Beth wanted a different kind of holiday and chartered a boat to drop them off on an uninhabited coral island. The island is idyllic, surrounded by a wide reef and covered in palms. But when their possessions start to go missing and they find footprints in the sands, their dream holiday turns to a nightmare, and they realise that the island isn't as uninhabited as it seems.
Written and directed by Bill Bennett (The Nugget, Kiss Or Kill), Uninhabited was shot over two winter months last year on the Great Barrier Reef.
The 93-minute film, starring Geraldine Hakewell, Bob Baines and Tasia Zalar, will be screened (along with a Q+A by Bennett) next month at the Canberra International Film Festival.
