The Lap of Tasmania
How can we consume less? Live our dreams? Meet new friends? Adventure more? And have a bloody good time doing it? ‘The Lap of Tasmania’ is a documentary, following Dustin Hollick and Rhian Slapp, two ordinary fathers with the survival skills of well-trained house pets, on a two-week journey around Tasmania with not much more than the clothes on their backs. The rules are simple: No cash, no car, no technology and just 10 personal items each. These scruffy surfers from the East Coast of Australia leave home to learn the secrets of a well-balanced life and aim to get back a connection with nature that has been lost with the advent of modern convenience. They re-connect with nature but it is the goodwill and generosity of the quirky humans that inhabit this remote island that make their journey and survival possible.
