About this event

PRESENTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ANU LEGAL JUSTICE AND SOCIAL REFORM

The synopsis reads like that of a thriller: a deadly night club fire, burn victims dying from wounds that weren’t initially life-threatening, the death of the head of a pharmaceutical company, and the resignation of a health minister, all within weeks of each other. But Collective is in fact a documentary about a team of investigative journalists who uncover massive health care fraud in the wake of the devastating 2015 fire at the Colectiv club in Bucharest, Romania.

It is an uncompromising film that follows journalists, whistleblowers, victims, and government officials to demonstrate the impact that investigative journalists and an independent press can have. Collective has won over 20 awards and was nominated for two Academy Awards this year: Best Documentary Feature and Best International Feature Film.

This screening will be followed by a panel discussion hosted by ANU Law Reform and Social Justice (LRSJ), featuring eminent legal experts and academics discussing the themes of the film, including Associate Professor Matthew Zagor, Director of ANU LRSJ; John Griffin, Former Australian Ambassador to Greece, Bulgaria and Romania; and Dr Judith Healy, ANU Menzies Centre for Health Governance.
