'The Act of Killing' will open this year's CPH:DOX / by Mauricio Gonzalez-Aranda

We are proud to announce that The Act of Killing will be the opening film at CPH:DOX 2012. 

The film will be screened at the opening gala event on October 30, at Koncerthuset in DR-Byen in Copenhagen. 

Tine Fischer, festival director for CPH:DOX says the following about the film: "The Act of Killing is like nothing else I have seen. It is radical in its political analysis and criticism, it is progressive in its combination of genres; gangster drama, glossy musical and surreal psychotic drama. And it sits with you in a way that is inescapable. It will become a film which will receive a prominent place in film history, and a film that everyone should see. Not only those with a particular interest in political documentary, but everyone who has the courage to face "the heart of darkness". It never becomes black and white because even the most hardened executioner can be confronted with his own lies."
