The Act of Killing

As with all Bijou programming, students with a University of Iowa ID get in FOR FREE! $6.50 for the general public.


In a place where killers are celebrated as heroes, these filmmakers challenge unrepentant death-squad leaders to dramatize their role in genocide. The result is a surreal, cinematic journey, not only into the memories and imaginations of mass murderers, but also into a frighteningly banal regime of corruption and impunity.
