The world premiere of ""

11 February, 1999

"" was premiered at the Akademie der Künste, as part of the Berlin International Film Festival, and it received an overwhelmingly positive reaction from the full-house audience.

The screening was followed by half an hour of discussion with the directors and 5 killers (plus 2 bunnies) answering questions from the audience. Here are some photos from the evening.

From L to R: Our first target Max Andersson (shoulder only), Directors/Producers Tina Ellerkamp & Jörg Heitmann, Karin Maeßlinger (Forum), Usako & Kousa with Akiko, Barbara Philipp. Jim Lusted was also present at the discussion but not shown in this picture.

After the screening we celebrated
with a Killer cake!
