Content Type: Movie

On Saturday 14th of February 1900 a party of schoolgirls from Appleyard College took a trip to Hanging Rock near Mt. Macedon in the state of Victoria. During that idyllic sun-drenched afternoon some of the party left the rest of the group and having climbed higher, stopped to rest and fell asleep. They awoke as though still in a dream and silently ventured further through a passage in the imposing rock face. Some of the girls were never seen again.

The film that established Peter Weir as a major filmmaker is a critically acclaimed classic Australian cinema. With BAFTA winning photography and a memorably haunting score, Picnic at Hanging Rock remains one of the most chillingly atmospheric and beautifully enigmatic films ever made.
