'The Act of Killing' selected for the prestigious Telluride Film Festival in Colorado / by Mauricio Gonzalez-Aranda

The Act of Killing, directed by Joshua Oppenheimer, co-directed by Christine Cynn & Anonymous and produced by Signe Byrge Sørensen, has been selected for the prestigious Telluride Film Festival in Colorado, taking place from the 31 August to 3 September.

In a country where killers are celebrated as heroes, the filmmakers challenge unrepentant death squad leaders to dramatise their role in genocide. 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.
