How the families of Shiji Lapite, Brian Douglas, Ibrahima Sey and Joy Gardner coped with sudden loss and their relentless struggle to get to the facts. Injustice uses powerful exclusive footage filmed over a five-year period and witnesses the families' pain and anger at the killings, the fight to retrieve the bodies for burial, the mockery of police self-investigation and the collusion of the legal system in the deaths. Screening includes an introduction and Q & A session with filmmaker Ken Fero.
