"Black and White"
Directed by Craig Lahiff
A bleak and chilling real-life thriller, about an
attempt by South Australian police officials in the late 1950s to frame a
young Aborigine for the rape and murder of a nine-year-old white girl.
Director Craig Lahiff coaxes powerful, sustained performances from his lead
players to recreate a shameful moment in history, in which small-town
solicitors and passionate newspapermen (including Fox News notable Rupert
Murdoch) go to bat for an innocent defendant. "A dark horse of a film" (The
Guardian). 101 minutes.
