The film Nitram is centred on the life of Port Arthur mass murderer Martin Bryant, with the title being Martin’s named spelt backwards. 

Caleb plays the role of the lone gunman responsible for Australia’s worst massacre on April 28, 1996, which took the lives of 35 innocent adults and children. 

Due to the sensitive subject nature of the movie, producers chose to film in Victoria instead of Tasmania where the tragedy occurred, the reported at the time of production in November.

The film will not depict the killings, but will instead focus on Bryant’s life before his murderous rampage in an attempt to understand how the atrocity occurred. 

The publication also reported that the film will not name Byrant, and will also assign fictional names to other key characters. 

Australian stars Judy Davis, 66, and Anthony LaPaglia, 62, took on the role of Bryant’s parents.

Actress Essie Davis, 51, portrayed Tattersalls lottery heiress Helen Harvey, who was a companion of Martin’s.

The Port Arthur massacre is known as one of Australia’s darkest days.

Bryant’s rampage started when he drove to the Seascape Guesthouse in Tasmania, where he murdered owners David and Sally Martin with a military-style semi-automatic rifle.

He then headed to the Port Arthur historic site where he had lunch before opening fire on guests in the Broad Arrow cafe, gift shop and carpark. 

Killer: The film Nitram is centred on the life of Port Arthur mass murderer Martin Bryant (pictured), with the title being Martin’s named spelt backwards.

His trail of destruction took the lives of 35 adults and children, injuring another 23, and prompted historic gun control legislation under the John Howard government.

Bryant pleaded guilty to 72 charges including murder, attempted murder, causing grievous bodily harm and arson.

On November 22, 1996, more than seven months after the massacre, Tasmanian Supreme Court Chief Justice William Cox ordered Bryant serve 35 life sentences without parole.

Bryant has never offered an explanation for his actions.

Still, there is speculation, including from investigators, that his murders were sparked out of retribution for grievances and others were collateral damage. He will die at Hobart’s Risdon Prison.
