Director Justin Kurzel retells the infamous Snowtown murders (the ‘bodies in the barrels’), one of the darkest crimes in Australian history. In this chilling feat of true-crime cinema, Kurzel takes audiences into the perspective of 16-year-old Jamie (Lucas Pittaway), as father-figure/mentor John (Daniel Henshall) preys on his vulnerabilities, gradually manipulating his involvement in one of Australia’s most notorious cases.

Presented on 35mm film prints from the NFSA collection.
