Melding archival footage with drama, Matthew Sleeth’s independent film Guilty aims to document the final 72 hours of Bali Nine drug trafficker Myuran Sukumaran, who was executed by Indonesian firing squad in April 2015.
Sleeth, an artist, ran workshops with the Australian in Kerobokan prison alongside acclaimed artist Ben Quilty, and the film was made with the Sukumaran family’s involvement.
