Andrew Adamson’s adaption of Lloyd Jones novel is based in war torn Bougainville, Papua New Guinea, and required the blending in of scripted elements into this location village. The story’s central character Matilda has an imaginative connection with her teacher’s reading of Dickens’s ‘Great Expectations’ and this is bought to the screen as a series of fantasy moments.
This profound story required hard-core location work interlaced with radical visual ideas for her imaginative journey to Victorian London. A gift of a project.
