In Indonesia, a country where killers were once celebrated as heroes, The Act Of Killing challenges unrepentant death squad leaders to dramatise their roles in the act of 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. This raw and terrifying Oscar-nominated film won the Best Documentary Award at the 2014 BAFTAs.
