No Way To Forget

Australia, 1996 (MIFF 1996, Fiction)

Director: Richard Frankland

Driving on the backroads of Victoria through the night Shane Francis is haunted by his memories. Based on Richard Frankiand s experiences as a Field Officer and Investigator during the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody— "This film deliberately has no end because the story has no end The deaths still occur the mothers still cry the children still ask me of their fathers and the community still rings me when a death in custody occurs" (MJ)
