Shaking audiences at the Toronto and Telluride Film Festivals and winning an Audience Award at the Berlin International Film Festival, THE ACT OF KILLING is an unprecedented film that examines a country where death squad leaders are celebrated as heroes. In this chilling and inventive documentary executive produced by Errol Morris and Werner Herzog, the filmmakers challenge former Indonesian 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.
