Essential Killing

Jerzy Skolimowski

Captured by the US military in Afghanistan, Mohammed is transported to a secret detention centre in Europe. When the vehicle he is travelling in crashes, he finds himself suddenly free and on the run in a snow-blanketed forest, a world away from the desert home he knew. Relentlessly pursued by an army that does not officially exist, Mohammed must confront the necessity to kill in order to survive. (Venice International Film Festival 2010)
