Bowraville Murders, The

For the past few years, director Allan Clarke and his film crew have followed the emotional journey of the families of one of the most heinous unsolved murder cases in Australia: the serial killings of three Aboriginal children in the early 90s, all from the same street in rural NSW. With the murders happening within five months and the children’s remains found off the same dirt track, there was always one key suspect: a white man who was completely acquitted after a racially biased investigation. A case jeopardised by systemic racism and launching a 30-year battle for justice by the victim’s families through the courts and beyond, THE BOWRAVILLE MURDERS traces along the lines of an open wound: and thanks to the families’ doggedness, a cop who reinvestigated the murders and an MP who led a Parliamentary enquiry, Bowraville has become a rallying cry for racial equality.
