About the film
In 1985, when apartheid was at its most violent, a black policeman was burnt to death and 25 people were convicted of his murder; 14 were sentenced to hang. “A Common Purpose” portrays the legal complexity of a notorious trial that marks South Africa’s transition from apartheid to democracy. The story – as told by defence lawyer Andrea Durbach, journalist John Carlin and the accused – reveals one of legal history’s biggest death penalty cases and a battle for justice in a country where injustice was entrenched in law.
About the event
The screening (77 min) will be followed by a question and answer session with Prof. Andrea Durbach and director, Mitzi Goldman. (Prof. Durbach, from the University of NSW, is Deputy Sex Discrimination Commissioner with the Australian Human Rights Commission.)
