"The Tale of Ruby Rose" (1988)

Australian, directed by Roger Scholes and set in the Tasmanian highlands. The film tells the story of Ruby Rose who has a fear of the dark. She is driven to undertake a harrowing journey out of the mountains in search of her lost grandmother.


The character is based on a story told to Roger Scholes by an old woman, Mrs Miles of Mole Creek Valley. As a young woman, she had lived alone in a hut in the highlands for four years, without knowing that her husband had died while trying to get back to her in the middle of winter. The experience traumatised her.
