Within an hour Grant and I decided we would up stumps on Pit B at the end of today and begin a new excavation closer to the cave entrance, where a large number of bones have been found on the cave floor and where augering on the previous trip had shown the sediment was over two metres deep. As I write we're all huddled around the campfire laughing at poor old Grant who's just melted the sole of his shoe by putting it too close to the fire, contented with a belly full of Carey's awesome tucker under a sky full of stars (veges only again much to the meat-lovers' disdain), wondering about what awesome fossils we'll find over the next two weeks...this is the life. The movie was owesome,The producers of this film should have no credibility with their audience. It's in excellent condition. Not far away is the Pannikin cave in which an expedition in 1988 nearly turned to tragedy. But you should never assume that a “based on a true story” movie is the same thing as a documentary. Situated in Nullarbor National Park, it was a working property until 1988. If one of the producer’s real experiences inspired him to write about it/create a movie in which he tried to recreate the intensity of the emotions that one confronts in life and death situations, then he has all of the creative license that he needs.

Many thanks for this very thoughtful and well-expressed comment, tunneldweller!

With the participation and assistance of High Springs cave diver Wes Skiles, one of the survivors of that 1988 near-catastrophe, Australian filmmaker Andrew Wight was inspired to … What hyperbole!!! Andrew Wight, a renowned cave explorer and dive master, actually wrote the story for the film which was based by an inspiration of actual events of a group of cave explorers he led in 1988. I can understand why it was panned by the critics. Koonalda Cave is a deep karst cave, situated on the Nullarbor Plain of South Australia and is well known for its archaeological evidence for ancient art and flint mining. Awesome movie!

I do not expect every movie goer to get out of the film what I did, nor to appreciate the story, photography or loss of life depicted. Thanks, Missy. Its kinda bump(relieve at the same time) to know about what exactly happen because when the movie was playing, i kept thinking to myself. More so how they treated each other in the face of possible death..granted its just a movie, but it would have been much more entertaining and suspenseful if i actually gave a sh*t about the characters. I’m really glad to be alive, on top of the earth and free rather then trapped and dead inside the earth. I'm really keen to start on Pit C tomorrow.

The sequence within the limestone includes five formations: Im glad its just all made up. Victoria took Jude’s rebreather to get out of the cave… They must have fixed the hose before the cave flooded. Thanks, Denise. An amazing story wraught with intrigue, emotion and some tough life lessons. :)). Yes, it is a sad loss, Corasko. By the end of the movie i was hoping they’d all die. Really, is all that necessary?? That’s not what happened in the movie though, right? I feel like I was able to appreciate the beauty and emotion the people responsible for the movie wanted to convey.

I just watched the movie for the first time and thought it was good people shouldn’t get so caught up in the whole “based on a true story” “inspired by…” Those terms just means that the real events laid the foundation for a more dramatic telling of the story unless its called a documentary then chances are the only thing “real” of factual is the main point to the story which in this case was cave divers got stuck in a cave the rest is up to whoevers imagination so either enjoy it for what it is a good movie or complain about what it isn’t a documentary. Thanks, Theresa — like you, I always want to know more about the real story, so I am glad to provide that information here for others who are interested. “based” means that the narrative follows the basic unfolding of the real events, or at least has a substantial connection with the real event on a number of material points.

The true story was enough to make a movie for, but, since the producer was one of the ppl who were trapped he figured he could make an arm and a leg filming absolute nonsense. Btw, this movie that I watched stated that it was “inspired by true event”. The Nullarbor Plain is a former shallow seabed, as indicated by the presence of bryozoans, foraminifera, echinoids and red algae calcareous skeletons that make up the limestone.

Read all above and fully agree with the term “inspired” as reflecting well the Sanctum movie. It leaves you reflecting on life, how fragile it is and really does make you feel like you are there. they should fire all of the actors, and better yet the producers for saying it is based on a true story. did not like this movie, what was it about, the real story had nothing to do with the movie.
