Drafthouse Films has unveiled a new poster on behalf of director Joshua Oppenheimer’s "The Act of Killing". "This upcoming groundbreaking documentary is about Anwar, who is a National hero, grandfather, and responble for the genocide of 1,000,000 people. He is challenged to recreate on film the memories of murder. From executive producers Errol Morris & Werner Herzog this project opens in select theaters beginning Friday, July 19th. Below you will also find this gruesome trailer for "The Act of Killing".
"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 and winning an Audience Award at the 2013 Berlin International Film Festival, The Act of Killing is an unprecedented film that, according to The Los Angeles Times, "could well change how you view the documentary form."
