The Interrogation

The Interrogation

Directed by David Nath

Norfolk farmer Tony Martin is arrested by police after shooting burglars who’ve broken into his remote farmhouse on a summer evening in 1999. It’s a crime that divides the country. For many, the reclusive Martin is a vulnerable householder plagued by burglaries who acted in self-defence to protect himself and his property. But when the body of 16-year-old Fred Barras is found in the grounds of Martin’s farm, a different view of the eccentric farmer emerges. Is he a reckless vigilante, ready and willing to kill? For the detectives this interrogation hinges on a key issue - did Tony Martin use reasonable force?
