Special Programs - The Act of Killing

Unlike anything that has ever come before it, "The Act of Killing" is an examination of the idea that history is written by its victors. Joshua Oppenheimer's spectacular provocation hinges on a shocking experiment: giving those responsible for the mass killing of nearly a million 'communist' criminals in Indonesia the opportunity to recreate their horrific deeds in the manner of the film entertainment they love so dearly. Brought to you by Werner Herzog and Errol Morris (two men known for their audacious documentaries), "The Act of Killing" is a documentary experience that won't be soon forgotten.
