AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Based on the poems of John O'Brien (the nom de plume of Catholic priest Father Patrick Joseph Hartigan), the narrative is a sentimental retelling of the early life of a priest, presumably Hartigan (who in the film is seen reading from a book of poems). The story elements include the priest's early life in the country during the 1870s, his first school (a shaky old slab hut), a tender childhood romance, and his latter years as part of the 'modern' world of the mid-1920s.

'Australian cinema began with a confident leap into the future. Charles Tait's The Story of the Kelly Gang, made in Melbourne in 1906, is credited as the world's first narrative feature. Post-Federation years continued to see poetry influence the national imagination, and occasionally inspire cinema on its journey.' (Author's abstract)
