The Story of the Kelly Gang

In 1906, Australia produced what was arguably the first ever feature-length film. Shot just outside Melbourne, it recounts the exploits of legendary bush ranger, Ned Kelly, not long after the actual events took place. Much of the original footage is lost, but this meticulous restoration pieces together fragments and outtakes to provide a glimpse of what might have been. It also comes with an optional 190-page book about Ned, the film and its place in cinematic history.
