STORYLINE


With extraordinary access to those involved, including one teenage murderer himself, GOING POSTAL tells the story of the school and workplace shootings which have cast a shadow over American society since the 1980s. This April saw the 10th anniversary of Columbine, but the phenomenon is twice as old. Hundreds have been killed. The film, directed by the award-winning Paul Tickell, seeks to build up a picture of how and why this violence occurs.

The documentary speaks to survivors, families of those who died as well as friends and families of the murderers themselves. Interviewed also is Michael Carneal, serving a life-sentence for a notorious school shooting in Kentucky when he was just 14. His raw and troubling story and those of other shootings are placed in context by interviews with those who have researched this subject in depth – from the first cluster of shootings in the 1980s in the US postal service (hence the phrase “going postal”) to more recent occurrences.

Some experts argue that although mental instability plays a role, rampage shooters are rarely insane and impossible to profile.
