The Family explores the history of the strange abusive sect established by former yoga teacher Anna Hamilton-Byrne in Ferny Creek in the 1960s, and which flourished at a property in picturesque Lake Eildon in the late 1960s. In this comprehensive documentary director Rosie Jones gives us some chilling insights into the sect. As part of our MIFF 2016 coverage, Greg spoke to Rosie about the challenges of putting together this documentary.
The Family screens at Melbourne International Film Festival – Sat July 30 at 4 pm @ The Forum, Wed Aug 3 at 6.30pm @Hoyts Melbourne Central, and Thurs Aug 11 at 11am @ the Forum. There is an additional screening on Mon Aug 1. Jones will be in attendance at these screening to participate in Q&A sessions afterwards.
