In the exclusive video above, Snowtown director Justin Kurzel and star Lucas Pittaway talk us through the personal connections that drew them to the controversial new crime thriller.
The pair describe their own links to the Snowtown murders that rocked Southern Australia throughout the ’90s, before touching on the impact the film has had on the Australian public.
The murders, also referred to as “the bodies in barrels”, were the work of Queensland-born killer John Bunting, a neo-Nazi nursing a preoccupation with those he believed to be homosexuals and paedophiles.
