Final Payment

Australia, 1991 (MIFF 1991, Science Film Fest)

Director: David Evans

A farmhouse in New South Wales and a man and woman lie dead from gunshot wounds. Forensic scientists begin to reconstruct the crime, but somehow the clues don't add up. The time of death becomes crucial to solving the case. Forensic evidence from a most unlikely source eventually breaks the deadlock. This chilling, clinical re-enactment of an actual crime gives an insight into police work rarely found in the usual television drama. Part of the ABC's Indelible Evidence series, co-produced with German, British and New Zealand televison.
