The Violent Earth

This 3 part mini-series is portraying three generations of a family living in New Caledonia, from the year 1888 to 1988. The settlers and the Kanaks work out their destiny on the shrinking land. This is the saga of the Suttons, a pioneering Australian-Irish family in New Caledonia; and of the Kanaks, who are caught between their own culture and the legacy of French colonialism. A story of greed, passion, courage and death in which the fate of Oceania hangs in the balance. (3 x 120 min)

The primary filming was done in Port Douglas, with additional filming in Melbourne and  New Caledonia. The actors were both Australian & French.

DIRECTOR : MICHAEL OFFER

Produced by CRAWFORDS Australia and GAUMONT TELEVISION (France)
