Special Screenings of Shadow of Doubt in Tasmania - the Sue Neill-Fraser Case
Shadow of Doubt, the AFI/AACTA nominated and international award-winning documentary on the Sue Neill-Fraser murder case, was shown at a special screening by the Western Tiers Film Society at Deloraine in Tasmania on Saturday night. Eve Ash, psychologist and film-maker, who produced Shadow of Doubt, was there to speak about the film and answer any questions. I also spoke about some of the issues in the case and the challenges in getting the matter back before the courts.
There was a much higher level of interest in the social aspects of the film than we had expected. There were many concerns expressed about the case and the limited means in having the matter independently reviewed and investigated and re-considered by the courts.
Tonight, there will be a one-off screening at the State Theatre in North Hobart at 6 pm. Eve Ash and I will be speaking and participating in Q & A. Please book your tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.
There will be a series of public and media events leading up to the lodgement of the Petition for Mercy with the new Attorney-General. The Sue Neill-Fraser group is now a formalised and structured body and its numbers are swelling. There is a 2 hour meeting of the group this afternoon in South Hobart. As Stuart Tipple, Lindy Chamberlain's lawyer, pointed out, it is "people power" that can make the difference.
