SYNOPSIS -

"I wore jeans for killing. To look cool, I imitated movie stars." - Anwar Congo

Audience Award Winner at the Berlin International Film Festival.

In 1965 the Indonesian Government was overthrown by a military dictatorship. A murderous purge ensued that took more than a million lives.

Still living in Indonesia and without fear of prosecution, mass murderer Anwar Congo and his gang are the subjects of this chilling documentary. Playing themselves, these wannabe movie stars relish the opportunity to re-enact their crimes for the camera. That is until the charade becomes too much for Anwar.

Produced with the assistance of Werner Herzog and Errol Morris, Joshua Oppenheimer's raw and confronting The Act of Killing is the documentary of the festival season.
