A documentary that examines the 1989 case of five black and Latino teenagers who were convicted of raping a white woman in Central Park. After having spent between 6 and 13 years each in prison, a serial rapist confessed to the crime.
Up to 80 murders, 30 unsolved cases, thousands of assaults. In the 1980s and 1990s a murderous epidemic grips Sydney. The attackers are united by contempt. Their targets united by their sexual identity. All are gay. For the first time, DEEP WATER: THE REAL STORY presents the full account of the gay hate crime epidemic that bloodied Sydney's coastline. It stirs up old cases in the hope that new evidence will rise to the surface and bring peace and justice to the loved ones left behind.
As gay man and son of a policeman, I found much of this extremely confronting to watch. Thankfully I live in Western Australia. The behaviour of the police in the 70s , 80s and 90s was appalling! What is more appalling however, is the continued denial of the police and the covering up of their lack of due diligence! This documentary should make any civilised Australian bloody angry. I cannot imagine how these families feel anything but angry and pissed off!
