The Space Between
Spurred on by a paranormal experience as a child, filmmaker Bianca Biasi explores the grounds of Sydney’s old Quarantine Station, reputedly Australia’s most haunted site.
Encountering inexplicable phenomena, Bianca and her team of psychics, experts and professional ghost-hunters gather evidence, talk to witnesses and seek the truth about the strange events said to occur here.
Along the way the team zero in on the mysteries and controversy surrounding the eleven most reputedly prominent entities on site – with surprising results.
In her quest for answers about the paranormal, Bianca draws on documented history, numerology, psychic readings and psychological theory but stumbles on a common thread of trauma, and in particular childhood trauma, that links key members of the team with their sensitivity to the paranormal.
The series is packed with twists and turns culminating in Bianca facing her past – her own childhood ghost.
Being a gay child in a highly religious Catholic family, Bianca explores the experience of feeling like an outcast and alone.
Was her paranormal experience as a child a genuine encounter with the spirit world? Or was it the creation of a child desperate for love and struggling for acceptance in an environment of fear and rejection?
Partly filmed during the recent
Covid-19 pandemic, the history of quarantine has a compelling relevance to current events.
