THE ACT OF KILLING: A film by Joshua Oppenheimer


BLU RAY / 122 MINUTES / COLOUR / STEREO / IN ENGLISH

In this chilling and inventive documentary executive produced by Errol Morris (The Fog Of War) and Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man), The Act Of Killing examines a country where killers are celebrated as heroes and the filmmakers challenge unrepentant death squad leaders to reenact their real-life mass-killings in the style of the American movies they love. The hallucinatory result is a cinematic fever dream, an unsettling journey deep into the imaginations of mass-murderers and the shockingly banal regime of corruption and impunity they inhabit.
