The Highest Court (1998)


The Highest Court is a lucid explanation of the High Court of Australia. Parts of court cases are seen and the history of the court is explained.

Curator’s notes

The filmmakers were given unprecedented access to the court. The cameras are allowed ‘behind the scenes’ and justices are interviewed about their role. The film is well made in that it clearly explains the role of the High Court. Writer–director, Daryl Dellora’s credits include Against the Innocent, A Mirror to the People and The Edge of the Possible.
