A film that thrust Oscar-nominated director Joshua Oppenheimer into the international spotlight upon its initial release, “The Act of Killing” (2012) offers a chilling account of the mid-1960s genocide in Suharto-era Indonesia.

“Where does documentary end and fiction begin?” This is the central question that unifies St. Mary’s College of Maryland’s eighth annual film series, “Hybrid Documentary: Enacting Actuality.” The series kicks off with Joshua Oppenheimer’s “The Act of Killing” (2012) on Monday, Sept. 22, at 8:15 p.m. in the college’s Cole Cinema, Campus Center. The film series, presented by the Department of Theater, Film and Media Studies, is free and open to the public. Award-winning documentary filmmakers will be featured each Monday on Oct. 20 and Nov. 10.
