On the heels of the critically-acclaimed “Animal Kingdom” comes another gritty crime drama out of Australia. “The Snowtown Murders” spins the true tale of a group of serial killers who are now steeped in national lore. With a whopping 11 murders under their belt, what made this case so notorious was the circumstances of those responsible. Namely, that this was a group of four individuals who committed the murders, which makes this a very unusual case as most serial killers prefer to work alone.
Winner of the Cannes Film Festival’s special jury prize, “The Snowtown Murders” is under the helm of director Justin Kurzel. To get a deeper understanding of this real-life pic, we asked him to participate in our “Call-In Commentary” series, where filmmakers provide narration to their movie trailer.
