synopsis

 

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.
