No Way to Forget

Synopsis

Shane Franzis, an Aboriginal man, is an investigator for the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody.

Driving on an isolated country at night, he is haunted by things he has learned. The film blends flashbacks and visions into his cruise.

It's good to know a bit about the Royal Commission before watching this film.

Richard Frankland became the first Aboriginal director to win an AFI Award in 1996 for this film.
