About Zero Killed (from Barnabus Bailey)

What happens when you ask typical everyday working class people to film their personal murder fantasies, with them acting a role in the film? Then follow-up with interviews of each of them after the films to see how the experience affected them?

This brilliant documentary by Michal Kosakowski does just that. At times this film is humorous, other times frightening, as the participants share their darkest secrets and how they see them playing out visually. It is a brutally honest self-examination of those little thoughts we all experience daily. This documentary gets inside of your head and demands the ultimate in after viewing conversation circles.
