Obliterate Conformity


Feature documentary on the most prolific serial killer of the 20th century, Charles Sobhraj. It took me a week to convince Charles, who had only days before been arrested and jailed in Katmandu, to give me exclusive access to his story. It took me another week to negotiate with the entire jail administration to get us to shoot in the jail. Meanwhile Charles was psychologically manipulating me to trust him as the new best friend, a modus operandi he used on some estimated 400 of his victims. This doc was shot in India, Nepal, Australia, France and Thailand in 2002-2003.
