Lindy Chamberlain: The True Story

Lindy Chamberlain’s story has figured in Australia’s collective conscious since 1980, when a dingo took her defenceless baby in a random horrific attack. But it quickly became much more than that. The intrigue of the mostly unknown and untamed outback, of parents – particularly mothers – not behaving to conventional expectations; of a ruthless media, self-serving politicians and cowboy police resulted in the trial of the century and Australia’s most notorious miscarriage of justice. Through interviews with Lindy, her children and eyewitnesses today, archival footage and broadcasts and – for the first time -access to Lindy’s personal archive of family stills, movies, audio recordings and letters Lindy Chamberlain: The True Story is a compelling universal story that still resonates today.
