Drafthouse Films' The Act of Killing is so powerful, so moving, that Devin, Hulk and I all placed it on our top films of the year lists. It's a revolutionary film, unlike anything you've ever seen, and if you have seen it, I imagine you might have some questions.
Well, here's your chance to ask them! Joshua Oppenheimer, the director of The Act of Killing, is doing an online Q&A this afternoon, and anyone can join. Here's the info:
Currently The Act of Killing is available to view on iTunes, Amazon, VHX, Google Play and Netflix. Watch it today, and log into goldderby.com at 3:30pm PST today to join director Joshua Oppenheimer for a live streaming interview with a public chatroom for questions from the web.
If you haven't yet seen The Act of Killing, I can only urge you in the strongest terms to watch it as soon as you can. It's important filmmaking and the experience of viewing it will stay with you for years - possibly for a lifetime. As Hulk said, it's the rare documentary that has the capacity to effect change, and there can be no more powerful film than that.
