Summary
In 1972 Alwyn Peter, a softly spoken man of 22, stabbed to death his teenage girlfriend in a drunken rage. His 1981 murder trial made Australian legal history when his defence lawyer successfully argued that charges of murder and manslaughter were inappropriate for dispossessed, semi-tribal Aborigines. The tragedy of this event focussed attention on the alarming incidences of self-mutilation within some Aboriginal communities. The continuing ordeal of one man to come to terms with his actions is seen as representing the wider Aboriginal experience where feelings of hope and despair are inwards, often to tragic effect
