A piece of television that is as clever as it is exciting.

Der Tagesspiegel

With unprecedented meticulousness and attention to detail, the four-part Sky documentary examines the Munich shooting with its many traces, connections, assessments, backgrounds and aftermath.

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

What emerges is a frightening psychogram of the perpetrator, the image of a city in panic, and even more: the portrait of a society on the verge of hysteria.

Der Spiegel

The worthwhile TV documentary gives amazing insights into the crime and its consequences.

Süddeutsche Zeitung

The documentary is coherently constructed and impressively accurate in its research and analysis, leaving viewers touched and shaken.

Berliner Zeitung

The documentary series reconstructs the events on the day of the crime, takes a close look at the perpetrator's right-wing extremist online network on Steam - and describes in unprecedented detail the mistakes made by investigating authorities before and after the mass murder.​

Die Zeit

Madness like Shakespeare. (...) Between Paris and Berlin, Bataclan and Breitscheidplatz, filmmakers of many genres have tried to capture the insanity of extremist terror in pictures and words. But those of Johannes Preuss and Martin Bernstein are of unique urgency.

An assassination attempt and endless questions. On July 22, an 18-year-old terrified the metropolis of Munich: he killed nine people at the Olympia shopping center and seriously injured five others with gunshots before he committed suicide shortly before his arrest.


The perpetrator is dead – but many questions remain. As it turned out after long investigations, the 18-year-old's act was racially motivated - but how did the son of Iranian immigrants develop such deep-rooted hatred? How did the student get a gun? What role did his admiration play for Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik? What is his fascination with first-person shooters? And was there perhaps a connection to earlier, similarly motivated attacks?


In cinematic images, "22. Juli – Die Schüsse von München" illuminates the assassination from the perspectives of the helpers on site, the investigators, the media, politicians and, last but not least, those close to the assassin and the victims' relatives. The Sky Original Documentation is a production of Constantin Documentation in cooperation with Süddeutsche Zeitung. Producers are Jochen Köstler and Jan Klophaus, directed by Johannes Preuss, winner of the Student Academy Award. Sky Executive Producers are Christian Asanger and Nico Gammella.
