The Glenrowan Affair
Rupert Kathner, alongside partner Alma Brooks, was a guerrilla filmmaker of the most passionate and tenacious kind... the subject of the soon-to-be-released feature Hunt Angels.

Kathner's final film The Glenrowan Affair features the bushranging exploits of Ned Kelly and his 'wild colonial boys' on their journey of treachery, violence, murder and terror.

The production of the film generated more controversy than the film itself due to the creative fallout between Kathner and the film's original director, Harry Southwell, and due to the casting of local football hero Bob Chitty as Ned Kelly.
