Dying Breed

Synopsis: Dying Breed interweaves the two most fascinating icons of Tasmanian history: the extinct Tasmanian tiger and "The Pieman" (aka Alexander Pearce) who was hanged for cannibalism in 1824. Against all odds, Pearce escaped from the most feared penal settlement of the British Empire - Sarah Island - and disappeared into the impenetrable forests of Western Tasmania. Seven convicts escaped with him, yet Pearce was the only one that emerged... along with chunks of human flesh in his pockets. The legend of Pearce was born. An extinct species... a long forgotten legend... both had a desperate need to survive; both could now have living descendants within the Tasmanian bush. Many sightings of the tiger have been reported. Many hikers have gone missing. Hundreds in fact. Zoologist Nina is convinced there are still tigers remaining in the Tasmanian wilderness, and she has proof - a photograph of a paw print snapped by her sister just before she met with a fatal accident in the bush eight years befor

That's tannin.

Said the pieman to Simple Simon...


- Simple Simon...

- What are those?

Simple Simon met the

pieman playing with a knife.

Said Simple Simon to the pieman,

"Will you take my life?"

That's a nice rhyme.

Can I have a look at those?

Shit! She bit me!

Yeah, well, pick on

someone your own size.

- I'm bleeding!

- Wheelhouse! Now!

Which is fine.

It's her boat and I'm a guest.

You know, they made a whole X

- Files series

on people like that.



Measuring 6 foot from tail to

hood, it was a formidable pest.

This, supposedly, is the last

known footage of the tiger

since it was hunted to extinction.

Hey. Hey.

However, unconfirmed

sightings in Western Tasmania

have cast doubt that, in fact,

the tiger's extinct at all...

This is all very

interesting, but nothing new.

I see no reason to fund your proposal.

To the right!

If you'll take a look at this...

What, precisely, are we looking at?

A paw print.

As you can see, it's a perfect match.

Come on!

And where did you source

this one from, the Net?

My sister took it.

You all right?

You lost anything?

Yeah. My desire to have children.

She tried to eat me alive. Look at that.

What do you want me to do? Do

you want me to kiss it better?



Look out! Look out!

- Any damage?

- Better not be any fuckin' damage.

Jack, calm down. She

didn't hit anything.

Didn't you see him coming?

He came out of nowhere, Jack.

Don't blame me.

Let's not lose the plot. Everyone.

I mean, you were the one driving, Nina.

You ever heard of a

rearview fucking mirror?

I swear it was a car.

Look, why don't we just get to the

town and we can have a drink, okay?

I think we all need it.


Just let him drive.

Make it a double.
