Law Reform and Social Justice at the ANU College of Law would like to invite you to a public screening of the documentary, Innocence Betrayed.
In 1990 and 1991, three Aboriginal children were murdered in the rural town of Bowraville NSW â€" Colleen Craig, Evelyn Greenup and Clinton Speedy-Duroux. Despite there having been two trials and a coronerâ€™s inquest, no one was ever convicted of the murders. This film follows the journey of the murdered childrenâ€™s parents as they continue to fight for justice.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the writer and director of the film, Professor Larissa Behrendt.

She has published numerous textbooks on Indigenous legal issues. She is a member of the Academy of Arts and Sciences and a founding member of the Australian Academy of Law.
