THE FAMILY - FEATURE DOCUMENTARY
Anne Hamilton-Byrne was beautiful, charismatic and delusional. She was also incredibly dangerous. Convinced she was a living god, she headed an apocalyptic sect called The Family, which was prominent in Melbourne from the 1960s to the 1990s. With survivors and cult members telling their stories alongside the detectives who worked the case, this confronting feature documentary exposes not just what happened within the still-operating sect but also within the conservative Melbourne community that allowed The Family to flourish.
