Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory

After eighteen years of covering what police described as an open-and-shut case, Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory provides a stunning conclusion to one of the most notorious judicial cases in US history.

Drawing on new evidence and interviews plus their immense archive of footage, Berlinger and Sinofsky skillfully weave a riveting tale that brings new viewers up to date.

A testament to the power of advocacy filmmaking in galvanizing action and changing lives, this final chapter is a triumphant yet cautionary note about the elasticity of justice.

Director Joe Berlinger will introduce the screening and participate in a Q&A afterwards.

"To see our work culminate in the righting of this tragic miscarriage of justice is more than a filmmaker could ask for." - Joe Berlinger

Joe Berlinger's visit is presented in association with the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS) and made possible through the support of the David and Joan Williams Documentary Fellowship.
