Winner of the Down Under Berlin Audience Award 2017 for “Best Film”
Deep Water: The Real Story
Amanda Blue | Australia | 2016 | 87 min | European Premiere
Up to 80 murders, 30 unsolved cases, thousands of assaults. In the 1980s and 1990s, a murderous epidemic targeting gay men bloodied Sydney’s coastline. The film sheds new light on these hate crimes, and the institutional corruption that cost many men their lives.
“Deep Water – The Real Story raises the complex question of where the responsibility lies for these crimes – the perpetrators, the police, or a wider society in the grips of homophobia, misinformation and fear?” – SBS Australia
The screening will be followed by a discussion about violence against the LGBTIQ community.
