Watch Two Clips From Acclaimed Documentary THE ACT OF KILLING

, Founder and Editor
Joshua Oppenheimer's acclaimed documentary The Act Of Killing begins a theatrical run that will take it to thirty cities across America tomorrow and a pair of clips from the film have been released to show audiences why the film has made such outspoken admirers of Werner Herzog and Errol Morris.

In this chilling and inventive documentary, executive produced by Errol Morris (The Fog Of War) and Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man), the filmmakers examine a country where death squad leaders are celebrated as heroes, challenging them 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. Shaking audiences at the 2012 Toronto and Telluride Film Festivals, The Act of Killing is an unprecedented film and, according to the Los Angeles Times, "could well change how you view the documentary form."
Take a look at the clips below.

  • This is an important film. Impunity persists in Indonesia for these and later crimes committed by Indonesia's armed forces. We are urging the Indonesian government to apologize and provide reparations to the victims and their families of the 1965-66 massacres. See
