TRIBECA TV 52 Minutes North American Premiere
Picnic at Hanging Rock is a gripping reimagining of the 1975 film that plunges viewers into the mysterious disappearances of three schoolgirls and their governess on Valentine’s Day, 1900, exploring the far-reaching impact of this vanishing on Appleyard College’s students, staff, and enigmatic headmistress. Theories soon run rampant, paranoia sets in, and long-held secrets surface as the Rock exerts its strange power and the dark stain of the unsolved mystery continues to spread.
