Picnic at Hanging Rock is a mysterious and ambiguous film that’s truly a bizarre masterpiece. The 1975 film was directed by Peter Weir, who you know from Dead Poet’s Society and The Truman Show, about a group of schoolgirls that disappear on Valentine’s Day of 1900. I mean, that set up alone should have you intrigued.
Last week saw the release of a tribute poster by the talented Kilian Eng, absolutely one of my favorite illustrators. He’s done an impressive job of capturing the intrigue of Hanging Rock, the purity and innocence of the girls, and the juxtaposition between the two. The piece is so stunning, and technically it’s a brilliant, being made from an 11 color screen print. I can’t even impinge what a pain in the ass those separations were!
