Directors Tour

The Act of Killing director Joshua Oppenheimer visited the UK to celebrate Dogwoof's recent release of the film, and toured the country hosting Q&A screenings of the directors cut. After opening the film at the Ritzy on 28th June with a sold out screening and Q&A hosted by journalist John Pilger, Joshua picked up his bags and took to the road with the film visiting 11 cinemas and talking to rapt sell-out audiences up and down the country.

Hosted at Picturehouse cinemas, every event was presented by a different organisation giving audiences an unique experience at every city. Londoners were treated to a masterclass with fellow filmmaker Penny Woolcock; Newcastle had an Amnesty hosted event; Cambridge was presented in conjunction with the Aegis trust; and again in London magazines Vice and Little White Lies both hosted Q&A's.

What's more every single one of these special Q&As played the 159 minute Director's Cut and the reactions were universally glowing. Here are some examples from Twitter below:

Now Joshua has flown to the USA The Act of Killing to spread the word across the Atlantic, here are a couple of picures from the events


Here at Dogwoof we'd like to thank all the venues, speakers, and audiences who came out to support this unique film and series of events. If you weren't lucky enough to catch the tour the film is still screening right up and down the UK, have a look at: theactofkilling.co.uk/screenings
