War On Trial documentary - coming soon in 2016
In July 2013, two Australian peace activists took it upon themselves to deliberately damage an Australian Army Tiger Attack helicopter. Motivated by the infamous Collateral Murder video that was released by Wikileaks three years earlier and the global Ploughshares movement, Bryan Law and Graeme Dunstan faced years in prison for criminal damage worth $162,000. Bryan died of a heart attack only months before they were due to face trial. Graeme would have to face the court alone.
This new documentary from David Bradbury covers the intense three day trial, the motivations and strategies as the Australian peace movement put the country's involvement in the Iraq and Afghanistan on public trial for the first time.
Directed by David Bradbury.
