Picnic Hanging Rock

    Australian Films of Merit # Australia was one of the first countries to produce a movie, the 1906 6 minute feature of Ned Kelly. But then films became dormant for about fifty some years. Bushrangers were a favorite topic for ballads, plays and films as they represented a cavalier challenge to hated authority figures. Known as the Tait Brothers, this is believed to be the first feature film over an hour, in the world.
