The final 72-hours in the life of convicted criminal Myuran Sukumaran, who became an accomplished artist on death row under the tutorship of Ben Quilty before his execution by Indonesian firing squad in April 2015.
GUILTY takes us into the moment when Myuran Sukumaran and Andrew Chan, the 'Bali Nine' Australians, were executed in Indonesia. Approaching this moment through the aesthetic of his visual art practice, director Matthew Sleeth brings an intensely personal perspective, and this film is born of his experiences leading up to the executions of these two men, alongside six other prisoners. Matthew Sleeth ran art workshops inside Kerobokan Prison throughout Myuran Sukumaran's rehabilitation - creates an intimate, visceral portrait of Myuran during his last 72-hours. At the end of a life cut brutally short, Myuran created a series of incredible paintings. This film explores the extraordinary circumstances in which these works were created and Myuran's urgency to complete these final paintings. GUILTY presents Myuran's final days and his artworks that become a powerful argument against the death penalty.Written by
