EAC Films will present the haunting Australian film, Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975, PG), on Sunday, April 28, at 2 pm and 6 pm.

This sensual and striking chronicle of a disappearance and its aftermath put director Peter Weir on the map and helped usher in a new era of Australian cinema. Based on an acclaimed 1967 novel by Joan Lindsay, Picnic at Hanging Rock is set at the turn of the twentieth century and concerns a small group of students from an all- female college who vanish, along with a chaperone, while on a St. Valentine’s Day outing. Less a mystery than a journey into the mystic, as well as an inquiry into issues of class and sexual repression in Australian society, Weir’s gorgeous, disquieting film is a work of poetic horror whose secrets haunt viewers to this day.

Tickets for the screening are $7. They will be available for purchase via the EAC site, or at the door. EAC Films, in accordance with MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) guidelines, utilizes the movie ratings system.
