'This script is dedicated to the memory of Susanne Chauvel-Carlsson, and was inspired by a chapter in Elsa Chauvel’s book, My Life With Charles (1973). This is the story of the making of a dream, a dream to capture the essence of a narrative set in the South Seas, a story of a mutiny of the soul when The Bounty sailed into Matavai Bay in 1789. In 1932, the young Australian filmmakers Elsa and Charles Chauvel set sail with their cameraman Tasman Higgins to travel 15,000 miles by steamer to Papeete and Pitcairn. Leaving their toddler daughter Susanne with grandparents back in Stanthorpe, the trio set out on a journey that would take six months to complete, to gather film footage never before seen, of Tahitian dancers on location in Tahiti for their film, In the Wake of the Bounty.
