Forbidden Lie$ (Anna Broinowski, 2007) dramatised doco

I missed the Anna Broinowski film about Norma Khouri, Forbidden Lie$ (2007) so I’m grateful that SBS put it to air. The credits say it was written (as well as) directed AB, but I think NK had much to do with its creation also: it’s a collaborative piece of work.

A gripping thriller of a doco, Forbidden Lie$ mixes dramatisation as well as traditional investigative methods, including award winning Australian filmmaker Anna Broinowski herself as the reporter, resulting in a fascinating, complex film that keeps the surprises coming. ... The film's tagline is 'who do you believe?' Andrew Urban, Urban Cinefile.
