Director: Allan Clarke
In 1990-91 over a five-month period, three kids disappeared from an Aboriginal Mission on the same street in Bowraville, in northern NSW: 16-year-old Colleen Walker-Craig, 4-year-old Evelyn Greenup, and 16-year-old Clinton Speedy-Duroux.
Evelin and Clinton’s remains were all found off the same dirt road. Colleen has never been found.
There has always been only one suspect, a white man who was acquitted of two of the murders after a racially biased police investigation.
Directed by award-winning journalist and Muruwari and Gomeroi man Allan Clarke, this feature documentary investigates one of Australia’s worst unsolved serial murder cases.
Over three years, Allan Clarke followed the families’ emotional journey through the courts along with the dogged cop who reinvestigated the murders and an activist MP who led a Parliamentary inquiry.
As a result of their fight, Bowraville has become a rallying cry for Indigenous people everywhere who demand equal treatment under the law—an open wound haunting Australia until justice is done.
