We are beyond thrilled to announce that The Laps: Tasmania documentary has been officially selected to host its US Premiere and screenings at the prestigious Santa Barbara International Film Festival in Santa Barbara, from January 30 - February 9, 2019.

The Laps: Tasmania

How can we consume less? Live our dreams? Meet new friends? Adventure more? And have a bloody good time doing it? The Laps: 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 LAP 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.


Directed by Angie Davis and Dustin Hollick.

Screening times and location to be announced soon.
